Quivira, in Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley, is known for its Sauvignon Blancs. (It’s also a fun winery to visit. Take the kids. They have goats.) This 2008 release is no exception to the winery’s string of quality releases.

This Sauvignon Blanc, grown biodynamically, fermented with wild yeast, and aged six months in stainless steel, is crisp and clean, just what you’d want from a sauvignon blanc, really. Peaches are the most prominent character here, with bright green apple and some apricot on the palate. A slight melon tang is present, but it doesn’t last long. The finish is quick and zippy. Perfect for a light meal or sipping idly while the sun goes down.

I had similar notes for the 2007 edition of this wine (pictured), which is grown in a vineyard with a lone fig tree standing in the middle of it.
