Hanna owns 600 acres of land in the Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley and the Mayacamas Mountains. Under Christine Hanna’s guidance, the winery has evolved into an estate philosophy that blends the viticultural diversity of fruit cultivated in its four vineyard estates in unique appellations. With the help of Winemaker, Jeff Hinchliffe, Hanna crafts award-winning wines vintage after vintage delivering consistent quality to the consumer. “Our winemaking begins in the vineyard. We manage the canopies to achieve flavor enhancing filtered light from fruit set on. Harvesting is done at night by hand or machine depending on vineyard infrastructure and block size. Press cuts on all lots are de rigueur. Combinations of inoculated and indigenous fermentations are used. Our Sauvignon Blanc is aged on the lees until three to four weeks before bottling. This keeps the wine fresh and bright. Bottling takes place from January to July at monthly to bi-monthly intervals.” Tasting Notes: Brilliant pale straw tinged with peridot, the 2018 Hanna Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of honeydew, grapefruit curd, Meyer lemon and jicama. Flavors echo these aromas plus juicy notes of Rangpur lime, kalamansi and white peach. Fresh, zingy, and polished, it finishes seamlessly.
