Our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is extremely special for us because it is the first wine we have made from our Moon Mountain vineyard in Sonoma County, and it is also the first white wine we’ve produced. The tasting notes mirror the incomparable qualities of the land it originated from: Moon Mountain.
Our Moon Mountain vineyard is perched above Sonoma Valley at 1,600 feet elevation and is situated in volcanic soils along the western slopes of Mayacamas Mountain. Theorem has a remarkable 34-acre estate on Moon Mountain that contains volcanic soils, craggy peaks, abundant sunlight, and crosswinds that make this region unlike any other. At Theorem Vineyards, we seek to create wines that tell a story of the site and the soils they originate from, and we’ve accomplished that with our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc.
This white wine has a perfect balance of fresh acidity and rich fruit flavors. Strikingly aromatic, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc leaps from the glass with a beautiful array of citrus, stone fruit, flowers, herbs, and minerals. Everything translates through to the glass, with fleshy peach and ripe melon exploding on the palate. Lime zest and rocks tangle with jasmine, adding verve and complexity as it rides the long, crisp beam of acidity.
