Truchard Vineyards 2009 “The Shepherd” Sauvignon Blanc is a special bottling unable to be sent out for review due to its limited production. Beautiful aromas, intense flavors, and great acidity make it a delicious achievement that speaks distinctively of its Carneros origin. Aromas of passion fruit, honeysuckle, and lime are highlighted with notes of lychee and jasmine. The mouthfeel has subtle richness, filled with intense flavors of grapefruit, white peach, and melon. Bright acidity provides a zesty finish of citrus, minerality and spice that makes this 2009 “The Shepherd” Sauvignon Blanc irresistibly crisp and refreshing. This wine can be enjoyed on its own, or accompanying baked seafood, roasted vegetable salads, and even Thai food.
