2019 AJA Vineyards Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara Sauvignon Blanc

This approachable Sauvignon Blanc is grown using the same vines that are used in the South Island of New Zealand. Aged in steel tanks, this wine has notes of green apple, zesty lemon and lime.

Nerd Facts:

  • This is the only AJA wine not made from grapes on property, instead sourcing grapes from another family winery in Santa Barbara.
  • AJA planted Sauvignon Blanc on their own property in 2018. Stay tuned for the first release in Spring 2021.

Description

Tasting Notes

This New Zealand-style Sauvignon Blanc is fresh, vibrant and light-bodied. It has all the ‘classic’ aromas of citrus fruit – grapefruit, lemon and lime. Expect a balanced undertone of herbaceousness and Granny Smith apple.

This is a great wine for pairing with light dishes such as chicken, white fish, a leafy green salad or even tacos. Alternatively, drink by itself on a warm summer evening.

 

The Winery

Located in the serene nature of the Santa Monica Mountains one can find robust vineyards, fruiting endlessly and rapidly. AJA Vineyards was established in 2011 at the home of Todd and Heather Greenbaum and consists of three vineyards planted along the hillsides of their Malibu Estate.
