Denis Malbec, former cellarmaster of
Bordeaux’s famed Château Latour, made this
succulent white with wife May-Britt Malbec.
What You Need To Know
Sonoma’s Alexander Valley is one
of the world’s great regions for growing Bordeaux grape varieties,
which is why Captûre founders Mike and Carol Foster and Ben
and Tara Sharp zeroed in on it for their nascent wine label in
2008. They purchased a gravelly hillside on Pine Mountain and
convinced Bordelais winemaker Denis Malbec and his sommelier-trained,
Swedish-born wife, May-Britt, to leave Pauillac for the
comparative wilds of Sonoma. While most of Captûre’s red wines
come from its Tin Cross vineyard, the Malbecs looked north to
neighboring Lake County for part of the fruit for this Sauvignon
Blanc. There, cooler temperatures yield crisp, invigorating whites.
Juicy, fruity and fresh, with
lemon and white peach notes.
Light, citrusy or herby
seafood and pasta dishes;
salads and fresh cheeses.
