Cuvée Sauvage, French for ‘Wild Blend’, is a super premium Chardonnay and Pinot Noir brand from the Russian River Valley of the Sonoma Coast, California.
The cool climate wine region is named after the river that meanders through this territory, stretching inland from the extreme Pacific coastline.
Known for its marine influence, the fog here rolls in like clockwork, blanketing the vineyards from the sun, keeping the grapes cooler during the summer months to allow for slower ripening and more complex, crisp flavours to develop.
They say the finest wines are made in the vineyard and these cooler temperatures produce favourable conditions for brighter, unoaked Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that’s world renowned for its structure and flavour.
Our brief was to reflect the terroir and minimal intervention philosophy of these contemporary wine styles.
