“Once a year Sauvignon Blanc • Limited Release!”

Sauvignon Blanc Sensation • Certain Sellout!

By David Gettenberg

How good is the Hourglass "Estate" Sauvignon Blanc?

There are many fine Sauvignon Blancs produced in Bordeaux and Sancerre; even California has a few standouts.  But at home, there's always a few bottles of Hourglass to serve!

Hourglass is no ordinary California Sauvignon Blanc; it is akin to a white Bordeaux with its textured and integrated, expressive fruit and dry, limestone accent.  

The waiting list for this sensational sipper has grown;  in fact, the winery is sold out of the next release. Once you taste it for yourself, you will be hooked!

A dry mid-palate of minerality with a touch of vanilla bean and a dash of almond, grapefruit rind, and white peach separates Hourglass from the pack. Unfiltered, its fine chalky texture offers one of the most mouthwatering sensations we've ever experienced in a Sauvignon Blanc.

What's on the menu when you enjoy this stunning Sauvignon Blanc?

Certainly the classic pairing of seafood; however, we suggest roasted corn, goat cheese atop arugula salad, or sweet potato gnocchi drizzled with browned sage butter.

You may have heard of the Hourglass Winery.  Their blockbuster Cabernets have a cult-like following.  In only its 8th release, this, their Sauvignon Blanc, is every bit as special.

Enjoy!

“The bright, saline finish is so appealing.”

Antonio Galloni • 92 / 100

"The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is bright and crisp. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint, orchard fruit and tomato leaf are nicely delineated. The Sauvignon is done in equal parts tank and oak, with an approach that favors energy over volume. The bright, saline finish is so appealing."
