WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB SELECTION
The concept in naming this wine is that
every wine has a back story. The grapes
don’t magically appear on the vine, they
don’t magically get transported to the
winery, and there certainly is no magic in
turning those grapes into wine.
But since every harvest is different, every
wine has a story. This is, in essence, its
“Backstory” - how this wine came to be.
The vintage of 2014 could not have been
more perfect pretty much up and down
the state. That doesn’t always happen.
Some areas have better vintages than
others in the same year. The beauty of
the wines made by O’Neill Vintners is
that they have so many holdings in so
many areas of California that if the grapes
do better in one place over another,
then those are the grapes that go into
their wines. What happens to the “other”
grapes? Well, they go somewhere else,
but not to O’Neill.
We feature wines from O’Neill because
we’re never disappointed. And this
beauty is no exception. Sauvignon Blanc
does well pretty much everywhere in the
state except for the coolest areas. O’Neill
embraces their bundle of riches since
they get the pick of the litter and, thus,
the best the state has to offer.
Here is a classic California Sauvignon
Blanc offering bright, ripe kiwi, peach and
apricot flavors balanced with citrus that
enhances the lingering finish. Enjoying
this wine with raw oysters is a pleasure
that mere words cannot describe.
