T A S T I N G N O T E S:
A BRILLIANT BEAM OF SUNSHINE IN THE GLASS, THIS VIBRANT SAUVIGNON BLANC SHARES AROMAS OF APPLE BLOSSOM, WHITE STONE, PEACH KERNEL, AND CROISSANT. THE PALATE OPENS INTO FRAGRANT CITRUS, MOVING FROM PINEAPPLE TO JUICY MANDARIN ORANGE AND TANGELO WITH GENTLE NOTES OF YOUNG PEACH SUSPENDED IN THE SUPPLE, TENDER TEXTURE. A MOUTHWATERING WAVE OF GOLDEN DELICIOUS APPLES CARRIES THE WINE TO A CLEAN, ZESTY FINISH.

Purlieu’s sister label, Le Pich, gets its name from a Wappo Indian term meaning “golden eagle.” They are hunting birds, and you can often spot them above our vineyards as they soar, glide, circle and arc. They are beautiful birds — stately and impressive, but not haughty or boasting, with a nimbleness that’s inspiring. We hope that our Le Pich wines live up to the character of their namesake.
