WINEMAKER: David Eckert
Located just outside of Healdsburg in Dry Creek Valley David and his team have a 10-acre boutique farmstay winery focused on four very important principles – stay, taste, learn and explore. The reputation, history and development of Zo Wines is interwoven with the quality and individual character of family-owned vineyards. At the very heart of our winemaking philosophy is the requirement of the ‘the right fruit, from the right places, grown with the right people’!
2018 Estate Sauvignon Blanc
Dry Creek Valley
A balanced, lively expression of citrus and tropical fruits. With a pale straw color and hints of grapefruit zest, lychee and lemongrass on the nose and limey acidity and guava on the palate. This wine boasts a nice salinity, slate minerality and a well-balanced, medium bodied long finish.
Featured in Wine Flight #7 – Leaving on a Jet Plane…to Bordeaux!
A fruit sweet on the attack and lively with a great length and presence without having heaviness. It has a gorgeous medium ruby color with notes of candied apple, pear, rose petals and caraway seeds on the nose. On the palate you will find hints of cranberry compote, orange rind and Macintosh apple.
