Product Overview

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.  With this in mind.....

The 2017 Margerum Sybarite Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from 4 vineyards in the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara.  The wine is stored in stainless steel tanks (82%) and neutral barrels (18%) for 9 months, during which the fine lees are stirred. Very little SO2 is used; instead the lees and CO2 from fermentation help protect the wine from oxidation.

Aromas of grapefruit, honeyed quince, white flower blossom, toast, creamy lemon and some plantain, layered with a slight hint of gunflint and fruity Sauvignon. On the palate, it's rich creamy and full with layers of pear, grapefruit, and passion fruit. This wine is perfect to serve as an aperitif, with shellfish and salads, and a selection of your favorite cheeses. Also good at the end of a meal as a refreshing alternative to sweet wines.

93 Points, "Editors' Choice" - Wine Enthusiast
"This extremely energetic and zippy bottling offers grassy elements on the nose that are balanced by hints of passion fruit, wet stone and lime rind. The palate is extremely textural and grippy, delivering pear and apple flavors along with pink-grapefruit pith and a chalky finish." -MK, 12/31/18

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Opens with a fresh pop of acidity, keeping the flavors bright and light-footed. Delivers an energetic mix of ruby grapefruit, lime sherbet and orange blossom, lingering on the long, reverberating finish. Drink now. 3,900 cases made." -MW, 2/28/19

91 Points - Vinous
"The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Sybarite offers a striking combination of deeply expressive varietal notes along with the extra kick of textural richness that comes from this warm, early ripening season. Citrus, floral and herbal notes add freshness to this very pretty, nuanced Sauvignon Blanc." -AG, Sep/2018
