Brown wines have announced the national launch of their Z. Alexander
Brown 2017 Uncaged Sauvignon Blanc from GRAMMY award-winning musician Zac Brown and Napa Valley Winemaker John Killebrew. The new varietal is the second white wine to join the portfolio of robust wines, following the release of the 2016 Santa
Lucia Highlands Uncaged Chardonnay in January. Uncaged was inspired by Zac and John's approach to crafting Z. Alexander
Brown wines, and the title of Zac Brown Band's GRAMMY award-winning album.
Based on industry data, the new Sauvignon Blanc, with a suggested retail price of $19.99, is positioned for success. Sauvignon Blanc is growing at +5.6%, the second fastest growing varietal behind Rosé, and the $15-20 price segment is the fastest growing among Sauvignon Blanc, growing +16.2%.2
"All of the Uncaged wines are complex, juicy and dynamic. We wanted to craft a food-friendly, versatile Sauvignon Blanc—in a bold style with excellent acidity and balance. This wine is true to the variety, with fruit from prime North Coast vineyard sources," noted Z. Alexander
Brown winemaker John Killebrew. "Sourced from Napa Valley, warmer Lake County Vineyards in the North Coast and cool southern Suisun Valley vineyards just south of Napa County, this Sauvignon Blanc expresses flavors indicative of the region in which the grapes were grown: Juicy tropical passion fruit, mango and guava flavors are balanced by lemongrass notes, rounded out with refreshing and zesty lime and lemon citrus flavors."
"Both wine and music are intangible - you can't stop either one in time and examine it carefully as they both change over time. Each has a lot of tone, feeling and texture. It's all a craft. No matter what the medium is, it all takes a lot of love, time and attention to detail to come out with a final product you know everyone will enjoy," added Zac Brown, proprietor of Z. Alexander
Brown. "Like songs, each new wine release is unique, and we are really excited about our new Sauvignon Blanc."
Zac's dedication to craftsmanship is expressed not only in his music and wines, but in Southern Ground, the lifestyle brand Zac created to express his passions of originality, quality and philanthropy, including the Z. Alexander
Brown portfolio. As part of Zac's commitment to giving back to the community, Zac's Southern Ground family of brands help to support his non-profit passion project: Camp Southern Ground.
