    2020 Sauvignon Blanc LOD (2021 Avail in Jan)

    The Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from our estate vineyard in Los Olivos as well as a number of other carefully farmed vineyards with the Los Olivos AVA.  This is over 50% of Brander's entire production and most popular wine.   We are also celebrating our 44th year of harvest with this vintage.  A remarkable value, this vintage is brimming with bright refreshing notes of grapefruit and nectarine.
