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.
