2021 Queen Bee Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
The 2021 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, 75% 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 bright tropical aromatics of pineapple, passion fruit, guava, lychee, and papaya that evolve at first pour. Finishes with a rich sweet vanilla cream.
