Brander Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc (92WE)
“Crisp and stony aromas of crushed granite meet with grass on the nose, while the palate offers wet cement, lime-peel and freshly mowed lawn flavors.” – Matt Kettman, 7/1/2022
Brander Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Los Olivos District AVA
This is the wine that made Brander Vineyards – a trendsetting Sauvignon Blanc that came to define a region. Made with a majority of estate fruit, the clean and crisp style that’s beloved by so many was crafted by large diurnal shifts and unfussy stainless-steel aging. The results have been consistently lauded since their first vintage in 1977, with the label quickly becoming synonymous with both Brander and the Los Olivos District.
Los Olivos District, Santa Ynez Valley
Brander is an early standard bearer for quality Central Coast wine, with their reputation and drive helping to establish the Los Olivos District AVA in 2016. The roots of Brander go back to the 1970s, with founder Fred Brander exploring the potential of this more inland area while more focus was being given to coastal production. The flagship of the winery, the Sauvignon Blanc, proved to be an immediate success and is regarded as a reference for high quality California Sauvignon Blanc today. Working with the estate fruit and trusted neighbors, Brander additionally produces Cabernet Sauvignon and site selective Sauvignon Blanc.
