Cattleya Wines Alma de Cattleya Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2017


SKU 113474



Nick's Pick! - This vibrant, crisp, dry, refreshing and flavorful Sauvignon Blanc sold out in 4 months last year, for me. Quite understandable, once you try it. Not bad for a winemaker that is relatively, new to the California scene but one who's career is skyrocketing. Bibiana Gonzalez Rave knew at age 14 that she wanted to make wine. She was born in Columbia, trained in France, moved to California in 2007 and is now married to Jeff Pisoni, son of Gary Pisoni, co-creator of Santa Lucia Highlands. If you love Jayson or Wayfarer by Pahlmeyer then you will be pleased to hear that their vineyards and winemaking are now in the capable hands of Rave. As of 2016, Pahlmeyer vineyards and winemaking were also moved into her creative control. She has selected the name Cattleya as it is the specific orchid that is the national flower of Columbia and it is particularly, challenging to grow making it one of the most beautiful and delicate orchids in the world. - D'Arcy Barrett
