Bright and clear with moderate tears and a pale straw color. Aromatic with ripe eureka lemon, peach, nectarine skin, passionfruit with fresh herbal notes. Medium-bodied with bright citrus, fresh granny smith apple on entry and flavors of passionfruit and fresh herbs toward the mid-palette. The finish is moderately long, clean and textured, highlighted with fresh citrus and a wet stone mineral note.
Food Pairings – The 2021 JUSTIN Sauvignon Blanc is an extremely versatile wine that pairs nicely with a wide range of dishes. Try this wine with halibut ceviche marinated with citrus and with an accent of jalapeño pepper, or with prosciutto, fig, and goat cheese toasts.
About Justin Winery
OUR VINEYARDS – We planted our first vineyard back in 1981 with a mission to make world-class Bordeaux-style blends. Since then, we’ve expanded both our knowledge of viticulture in this unique region as well as our acreage.
SOIL – Rich in fossilized limestone from eons of marine deposits, JUSTIN’s soil is ideally suited to creating big, Bordeaux-style reds. The limestone “stresses” the vines, producing grapes that fully express their varietal character.
CLIMATE – Paso Robles’ distinctive microclimate offers the widest day-night temperature swings of any grape-growing region in California. The hot days allow the grapes to develop intense flavor, while the cool nights create great structure and balance.
OUR WINEMAKING PHILOSOPHY
At JUSTIN, we combine traditional Old World methods—like hand-harvesting and small-barrel aging in French oak—with New World technology. For example: the “Air Knife,” an ingenious process invented by our winemakers, boosts grape quality and efficiency.
Once the grapes are harvested, our winemakers—some of the best in the business—gather to sort, select, age, taste, blend and decide what goes into every bottle.
