Product Description

2018 vintage – 92% Sauvignon Blanc, 7% Semillon, 1% Muscat. The fruit comes from sustainably farmed vineyard in Rutherford, as well as other nearby vineyards. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are treated using 2 different methods. To enhance the delicate tropical fruit flavors, a portion of the fruit goes directly into the press as whole clusters. The remaining fruit is de-stemmed and left in contact with the skins for several hours before pressing, amplifying the grapefruit/citrus components. All of the juice is fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks using a variety of yeast strains selected to bring out the aroma and flavor profiles of Sauvignon Blanc. Aged on light lees in stainless steel tanks. Tasting Notes: “Bright, and fresh. The flavors and aromas are reminiscent of peaches, lemon curd, whitegrapefruit, and passion fruit with perfectly balanced notes of citrus, stone fruit. The fullness of the mid-palateis complemented by a crisp, lengthy finish.”
