2018 Sauvignon Blanc
Winery: Augur Wine Co.
Appellation: Potter Valley
From Martin: "We are thrilled to release this unique wine from award-winning wine professional Maz Naba. When he's not overseeing operations at one of San Francisco's hottest Michelin-starred restaurants, he's crafting a small amount of wine from sustainably farmed North Coast vineyards. This Sauvignon Blanc spent three days soaking on the grape skins prior to fermentation. Known as ‘skin-contact’ wine, look for this to have notes of macadamia nut and beeswax in addition to citrus tones. "
Winery: I. Brand & Family Wines
Appellation: San Benito County
From Martin: "It is truly an honor to offer a wine crafted by the San Francisco Chronicle's 2018 Winemaker of the Year. It's been awhile since we checked out a wine based entirely on Grenache and this shows wine shows what this underrated grape is capable of producing. Highly aromatic, notes of strawberry, white pepper, and rose petal leap from the glass. The unique limestone soils of San Benito County give the wine a long, mineral-driven finish. "
