Tasting Notes

A rich and expressive Sauvignon Blanc, the 2019 greets the nose with melon, lychee, and grapefruit. The finish is plush and long, with ample acidity.

Vineyard Notes

The Sauvignon Blanc is from one of our oldest blocks, planted adjacent the winery on shallow soil. The gnarly, old vines, which are now nearly 40 years old, continue to produce vibrant, expressive Sauvignon Blanc year after year.

Winemaker Notes

Wild yeast are used to ferment this wine over a long period at low temperatures. The wine is aged on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks for one year prior bottling, with no malolactic fermentation taking place.
