Sauvignon Blanc grows well throughout many parts of Sonoma County. Sauvignon Blanc is planted in Sonoma Valley Wild Oak Vineyard and Russian River Valley Lagomarsino Vineyard. The fruit is sourced from Alexander Valley and Bennett Valley. The warmer areas produce full flavors and aromas while fruit from the cooler areas brings refreshing crispness. These characteristics are thoughtfully blended for a balanced and lively wine. To retain the bright flavors and crisp acidity of this varietal, the grapes were picked at dawn and arrived at the winery cold. The grapes were pressed and a majority of the juice was sent directly to stainless steel tank while a small portion went to barrel for fermentation. The wine was fermented slowly at 55º for over 30 days, preserving the wonderful aromas of Sauvignon Blanc. We prevented malolactic fermentation to preserve the wine’s clean, crisp texture. It was then aged for five months before bottling.

Harvest Note
The 2021 harvest began just a little earlier than last year with the first fruit picked on August 18. Limited rainfall during the growing season produced slightly lighter crops but brought intense, concentrated flavor and color. Free from lingering heat waves, the consistent weather during the summer months helped maintain fruit acidity for brightness and balance. Harvest continued through the middle of October when the last of the reds were picked from the estate Lagomarsino Vineyard.
Tasting Note
Crisp aromas of white peach, lime leaf and honeydew melon followed by flavors of kiwi and citrus.
Food Pairing
Excellent as an aperitif or paired with salads, sushi, seafood and fresh, young cheeses.
