Preston 2005 Sauvignon Blanc


We picked this bottle up for $18 minus a case discount at Preston while we were visiting the area this summer. Sadly my camera is on the fritz and in the process of dying managed to erase my photo of the bottle and the wine in the glass. I’ve ordered another camera, but I won’t have pictures of any bottles until it gets here :(

Preston has gone completely organic in their farming procedures and all bottles of wine, starting with the 2005 Suavignon Blanc are made of organic grapes.

The wine is 13.5% alcohol by volume and had a real cork closure. I got lots of lemon and other citrus on the nose of my glass. A crisp wine in the mouth, with traces of minerality and grass. It was tart and light with an easy finish. Paired well with the creamy chicken casserole I had made as it seemed a good balance for the creamy flavors.

Looks like Preston is completely sold out of the 2005 vintage of all their white wines, including the Madame Preston Grape Wine, a bottle of which I have hanging around! Although, you can still find this Sauvignon Blanc online here.

  1. I found a bottle of this, and I’m glad to see you thought it was good, too. About that Madame Preston–it’s also excellent. I think I left a tasting note for it on CellarTracker.

  2. Hey Dr. Debs, just found this comment! I don’t often go back and look at the posts. I really enjoyed the Preston SB. Actually, we drank another bottle of just the other night and it was as good as usual. I am pretty impressed overall with the quality of Preston wines and am looking forward to hopefully stopping there again on this trip!
