每天都想喝好酒?那你一定不能錯過這款!

今天要介紹的酒來自傳奇創新者Derek Benham建立的Flint & Steel酒莊。納帕谷的硬質風土讓結實的葡萄藤為了尋找水源和營養而深深紮根,生產出具優雅格調、複雜的經典白蘇維濃。Benham和團隊細心挑選了能帶有美味水果風味,又不失結實、爽脆酸度的葡萄園來釀造這支酒 – 完美符合了世界級白蘇維濃的特性。

 

2016年是加州釀酒非常優異的一年。在冬季開始種植葡萄時,加州就降下了足夠的雨水,奠定了葡萄接下來幾個月的穩定生長。當年氣溫比平均溫度稍低一些,讓植物酚酸能夠發展良好。因此,2016年釀製的白蘇維濃富有強烈的成熟水果特性,另外也保持著爽脆的酸度結構。

 

釀造這款酒的葡萄,都是當糖度達到23°時在晚上手工採收的,以確保提升葡萄香氣時,還能保持糖度和酸性的平衡。果實抵達酒莊後,就會採用冷發酵的方式存放在58°F恆溫的不鏽鋼酒缸中,增強原有的天然柑橘香。

 

這支酒帶著葡萄柚、金銀花和萊姆的香氣,伴隨著一些礦物質的味道。飲用時可以嘗到多汁油桃和芒果氣息。整體結構相當結實完整、口感清爽,是一款非常適合啜飲、容易搭配食物的日常好酒。每天都想來一杯的朋友們,把握機會帶它回家吧!!

 

 

Flint & Steel was created by legendary wine innovator Derek Benham. Flinty terroir of Napa Valley forces steely vines to root themselves deep into the earth in search of water and nutrients. The result is a stylish and sophisticated classic Sauvignon Blanc. Benham and his team carefully select vineyards that lend a zesty fruit profile yet preserve a steely, crisp acidity – the hallmark of world-class Sauvignon Blanc.

 

2016 was another phenomenal year in California. The season kicked off with much needed winter rains that set the stage for months of steady and even growth. Temperatures were slightly below average which led to excellent phenolic development. As a result, this Sauvignon Blanc showcases exquisite ripe fruit character with crisp acidic structure.

The wine is hand harvested at night once brix levels hit 23° to assure balanced sugar and acidity while bolstering the grapes’ delicate aromatics. Once the fruit arrived at the winery, it was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks (58°F) to enhance the varietal’s natural citrus notes.


Flint and Steel Sauvignon Blanc offers lively aromas of grapefruit, honeysuckle and lime followed by notes of minerality. Juicy nectarine and mango flavors flow across the palate. A steely backbone frames the fruit and delivers a refreshing wine well suited for sipping and pairing with food.
