Have you heard of Flora Springs Winery?🤔 . @florasprings is located in St. Helena, CA and was founded in 1978 by the Komes Family who still manages the winery today. Their Winemaker, Paul Steinauer, and Assistant Winemaker Enrico Bertoz, work their craft using grapes sourced from their own vineyard sites located throughout Napa Valley. 🍇The winery focuses on sustainable farming practices by ensuring they build healthy soil, control vineyard pests naturally, and conserve water and biodiversity. . 🍷We had the pleasure of trying our first bottle from Flora Springs Winery this past weekend that we shared with family. We opened Soliloquy 2018 White Wine. This is comprised of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Malvasia, and Pinot Gris. The wine is aged for 7 months in a combination of concrete “egg” vessels, French oak barrels, stainless steel barrels, and oak puncheons. Only 620 cases were produced. . 🍷Name of Wine: The name is derived from their proprietary Sauvignon Blanc clone unique to Floral Springs. This clone nearly went extinct and took 8 years to protect and preserve this precious clone. Check out our review below.⬇️⬇️ . 🍷Wine Review:👃 Nice aromatics of lychee fruit, bit of starfruit passion fruit, kiwi, and coconut water. 👅Quite tropical and refreshing. Not overly oaked but rather just kissed by oak. The alcohol is kept in check and stays in balance with the acidity. This is a lovely wine and happy to have tried on this past beautiful weekend.😍😃 . 🍽Food Pairing Rec.: Great with seafood🦞🦀🦐🦑🐚🐙 and heavy cream sauced dishes! . ❓Have you had a wine from Flora Springs? If not, what producer makes your favorite white wine blend?🤔 . . #floraspringswinery #whitewine #winegeek #winediscovery #tryanewwinetuesday #youcansipwithus #winecouple #winereview #winecritic #porchwine #sippinonthis #tastingnotes #wineoclock #winedown #summerwine #winewriter #wineinfluencer #winenerd
