Unshackled has unveiled a new 2020 Sauvignon Blanc. The new offering joins a portfolio that includes a rosé, a red blend, and a cabernet sauvignon.
Developed by The Prisoner Wine Company’s Director of Winemaking Chrissy Wittmann and her winemaking team, Unshackled is a brand characterized by flavors that “embody the bold and fearless,” says the brand.
The Unshackled 2020 Sauvignon Blanc offers notes of melon, peach, fresh citrus, and tropical fruits, along with the addition of Chenin Blanc and Roussanne, which add brightness and texture to the mouthful, creating an unmatched flavor.
Unshackled officially launched in early 2020 and provides a well-priced option for wine drinkers looking to further explore the ethos of parent brand The Prisoner Wine Company. Each wine in the portfolio is sourced from California’s Central Coast and North Coast wine growing regions, and are all priced under $30.
The Unshackled bottling “honors the eye-catching labels that The Prisoner Wine Company is known for with each bottle being adorned with a metallic codex debossed with details that hold the key to the wine’s appellation, varietal and vintage,” says the press release.
The Unshackled 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is priced at $27. Head over to the brand’s official website to find a bottle.
