Product Description

Azur 2009 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc :

Their philosophy is to produce wines that express pure, terroir-driven specificities and characteristics. Wine style is a combined expression of the fruit, soil, vines and climate.

“As a winemaker, my job is to bring out the best qualities that the vines have provided. I don’t seek to make a style of wine but more so to make wine that sings of it’s place, it’s history and it’s uniqueness. That’s my goal as a winemaker, to make wines that are pure expressions of their environment and not mask it. Wines with an identity.”

— Winemaker Julien Fayard

To produce the highest quality wines, the origin of quality expressed through the vineyards, the fruit and very production practices determine a good wine from a great wine. We wanted to create the highest quality wines representative of our two cultures, French & American. Emphasis on vineyard selection, farming and fruit maturity is key.

The wines we produce reflect our dedication to haute quality with expressive layers of details and distinct flavors.

88 Points, Wine Enthusiast:

“This is a lovely Sauvignon Blanc that shows enough elegance and finesse to serve with fine food. It’s dry and crisp, with citrus, lemongrass, gooseberry and mineral flavors. Nice with tempura appetizers. S.H.” (11/1/2010)

87 Points, Wine Spectator:

“There’s a pungent quality to the passion fruit, papaya, melon and fresh herb flavors, with a fleshy body, tangy acidity and hints of white pepper and mineral on the finish. Drink now. 1,000 cases made. –MW” (8/31/2010)
