Spirits of Pawling Savignon Blanc Wine

Lieu Dit Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Region: California, Santa Barbara | ABV: 12.6% | Tasting Notes: Lime zest, kiwi, lemon From Eric Railsback and Justin Willett comes this Santa Ynez Valley laser-focused, mineral-bright white. California’s Central Coast is home to our top sauvignon blancs where the Santa Barbara micro-climates and marine-based soils come together to make truly brilliant wine. Sourced from three separate vineyards in the area, combining tank and barrel fermentation, Lieu Dit Winery proves itself to be a California nod to the French ethics of achieving wine perfection by way of an extreme acid trip.

Sauvignon Blanc & Pinot Gris Wines

Sauvignon Blanc history, as told by the Spirits of Pawling. One of the few grape varieties that can be grown anywhere in the world is the Sauvignon Blanc variety. The majority of grape varieties can only be found in a select few locations worldwide. In 1889, the variety of Sauvignon Blanc was introduced to California; however, where did it originate? Who were its ancestors? How was it affected along the way?

The Loire Valley, where it was known as “fiers” in the 1500s, has a long history of growing Sauvignon Blanc. The name “sauvignon” was given to the plant because of its resemblance to wild grapevine-shaped leaves and its vigorous (wild) growth. The French words savage, which means “wild,” and vigne, which means “vine,” are the source of the word “sauvignon.” Learn more…

Pinot Gris Wines

The Pinot Gris grape variety belongs to the Pinot family and is a pink-skinned modification of Pinot Noir. It is indistinguishable from Pinot Noir in the vineyard right up until ripening when the wine is mature and can withstand the heat of the summer.

In addition to taking on their distinctive array of colors, Pinot Gris berries can also be seen in hues that range from orange pink to pale purple. In French, gris means “gray”, and it refers to the dusty, light-gray sheen that the grapes often possess. The convention is widely used throughout Europe, including in Italian, German, Slovenian, and Czech (sede) as well as in French (grigio), German (grauer), and Slovenian (sivi).
