The 2022 Hourglass, "Estate" Sauvignon Blanc was a Merchant's Pick
Sauvignon Blanc Sensation • Once A Year Limited Release!
July 24, 2023
Let's put it this way: when available, I always have a few Hourglass "Estate" Sauvignon Blanc bottles chilled at my house, ready to serve!
Some of the finest Sauvignon Blanc wines are produced in Sancerre and Bordeaux. Add Hourglass Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley to this list. This all-estate white is different from other domestic Sauvignon Blancs.
Imagine taking the chalky, white flour character of Sancerre and blending it with Bordeaux Blanc's expressive fruit and dry limestone accents.
Once you taste Hourglass for yourself, you will be hooked!
The entry is refreshing and vibrant. A mid-palate of minerality is followed by white flowers, 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 11th release, this, their Sauvignon Blanc, is every bit as special.
One Sip An You Will Be Hooked!
