2020 Margerum Sybarite Sauvignon Blanc
Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara

The word SYBARITE is derived from Sybaris, an ancient Greek city in southeastern Italy noted for the luxurious, pleasure seeking behavior of many of its inhabitants. SYBARITES are people who have a fondness for sensuous luxury. This wine is perfect to serve as an aperitif.  We like it with shellfish and salads, of course it works well with a selection of your favorite cheeses.  Also good at the end of a meal as a refreshing alternative to sweet wines.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Stone fruit, granite, white flower blossoms, toast, creamy lemon and some plantain, layered with a slight hint of gunflint and fruity Sauvignon.
Vineyard Notes
Grapes picked early for acidity, later for ripeness. Blend for balance
Production Notes
Mainly stainless steel fermented with a small about of barrel fermented lots blended in Bâtonnage (stirring of the lees) leads to savory notes. Lees add to mouthwatering sensation Rich, tight, lean and full with layers of slate, lime, green melon tropical and lemongrass. Retained CO2 keeps the wine fresh after opening and allows for a lower sulfite addition
