2020 Queen Bee Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
The 2020 vintage of Kelly Fleming Reserve QUEEN BEE Sauvignon Blanc incorporates 57% Sauvignon Musque (an aromatic clone of Sauvignon Blanc) fruit from the Kick Ranch Vineyard in cool, coastal Sonoma County, along with 43% Sauvignon Musque from Ryan’s Vineyard, a sweet spot tucked away in the sunny yet cool, Oak Knoll AVA in Napa Valley. Aged in 25% new French oak, 25% Stainless Steel, 50% Neutral French oak for 18 months.
Winemaker Notes: With a longer aging process and a small amount of new French Oak, this Sauvignon Blanc has tropical notes of kiwi, banana and lychee blooming from the glass. A beautiful confectionary note of lemon meringue and toasted marshmallow continues to evolve with air. Medium acidity frames the palate with a smooth and rounded texture, layered with flavors of meyer lemon, jasmine, and citrus honey.
