Fruit for this refreshing wine comes from top growers in Sonoma County, an area renowned for producing high quality Sauvignon Blanc. Cool mornings and warm afternoons produce fruit with classic Sauvignon Blanc characteristics and pronounced flavors. 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 21 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 2020 growing season enjoyed near-perfect growing conditions. With minimal rain this winter, the vines were awakened with ideal, moderate spring-time temperatures and no frost threat to the developing buds. Veraison occurred 7-10 days earlier than previous years due to the temperate weather. Even daytime temperatures and cool nights throughout the summer months with a few short-lived heat spikes allowed for excellent flavor development. The year saw an early end to harvest as wildfires threatened the region.
Tasting Note
Crisp and refreshing, this Sauvignon Blanc offers delicate aromas of lychee, melon and tangerine zest. Flavors of fresh-picked white peach, guava and a hint of lemongrass lead to a bright and smooth finish backed by a hint of minerality.
Food Pairing
Excellent as an aperitif or paired with salads, sushi, seafood and fresh, young cheeses.
