Delta bottle

Delta

Sauvignon Blanc, 2019

This is the sixth wine Matt Iaconis has crafted for Blue Apron, making him one of our most popular winemakers, but the first under his Delta brand. As with his previous wines, Matt shows that California’s highest-quality grapes are often found in off-the-beaten-path old-vine vineyards, but this wine also reflects his commitment to the environment. With the goal of making wines for environmental change, Matt and his wife Alexis donate $1 of every bottle of Delta sold to environmental groups that work to reduce carbon emissions and protect the ocean.

Profile

Delta Sauvignon Blanc is classic California in style, just with more minerality. Textured and bright with citrus and melon aromas, its acidity makes your mouth water for a second sip.

Pairing

These vibrant wines often taste of passion fruit or citrus, sometimes accented with an herbaceous note. A fruity-zesty balance, a signature of Sauvignon Blanc, is what makes these wines delicious with goat cheese (a staple pairing in France’s Loire Valley); the wine makes the cheese taste creamier.

More About The Wine

Lodi is a warm, dry region where just about every grape variety, red or white, grows well. Winemaking immigrants from Europe figured this out around 1850. In more recent years, small sections of Lodi that experience breezy, cool nights were planted with vines, since the chillier air preserves a zingy freshness in the wines.
