2010 Margerum Sybarite Sauvignon Blanc, Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara
Crisp, clean and smooth, with notes of mango, melon, peach and tangerine, that are vibrant and juicy, supported by a refreshing acidity and mineral details, with plenty of focus.
Santa Barbara County
SYBARITE is our definitive Sauvignon Blanc. An amalgamation of all of the top Sauvignon Blanc vineyards we work with. It is crafted from Grassini Vineyard 48%, Westerley Vineyard 28%, Star Lane Vineyard 15%, Curtis Vineyard 9%. By Blending these diverse vineyards we get bold expressions of Sauvignon Blanc’s range of flavors. The result is a wine with remarkable complexity, texture, persistence, and length. SYBARITE is a general term for describing one fond of pleasure and luxury. SYBARITE is derived from Sybaris, an ancient Greek city in southeastern Italy noted for the luxurious, pleasure-seeking habits of many of its inhabitants. It is pronounced Sib – bar – right.
