How good is the Hourglass "Estate" Sauvignon Blanc?
Many fine Sauvignon Blancs are produced in Bordeaux and Sancerre; even California has a few standouts. But at home, there are always a few bottles of Hourglass chilled and ready to serve!
Imagine taking the chalky, white flour notes of Sancerre and blending them a Bordeaux Blanc's integrated, expressive fruit and dry, limestone accents.
The waiting list for this sensational sipper has grown; the winery is sold out. Once you taste it for yourself, you will be hooked!
The entry is refreshing and vibrant. A mid-palate of minerality is followed by white flower, lemon zest, green apple, young melon, a dash of almond, grapefruit rind, and white peach. For those in the know, this white is rapidly becoming a favorite over some very prominent California brands. 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 10th release, this, their Sauvignon Blanc, is every bit as special.
