67% Semillon, 33% Sauvignon Blanc, 13.1% Alcohol.

WINEMAKING NOTES

The 2014 vintage was defined by almost no rainfall and a historically early bud break. The vintage saw sustained periods,of warm to hot weather with no dangerous heat spikes. The warmth of the vintage allowed for really nice physiological ripeness retaining natural grape acidity resulting in low alcohol wines with rich concentrated varietal flavors. With no real cool down, the harvest was as early as any in recent memory, starting in mid August for our Sauvignon Blanc and mid September for Semillon. The Semillon was fermented, racked and then matured for 10 months in one new 600 liter Demi-Muid Taransaud French oak barrel and one new 225 liter Quintessence French oak barrel. The Sauvignon Blanc was fermented, racked and matured in all neutral French oak barrels. Due to excellent vintages conditions the resulting wine has perfect balance with nice acidity, low alcohols, and precious tannins. The wine is concentrated and intense, yet round and beautiful.

TASTING NOTES

The finished wine exhibits floral aromas with a hint of brioche toast, honeysuckle, figs and a zesty citrus note. The Sauvignon Blanc provides a lift and perfect accompaniment to the Semillon with varietal aromas of grass and tropical fruit. The wine shows pear and apple with nice wood tones with creaminess on the mid-palate that gives way to a hint of vanilla. It delivers a very rich mouth feel with a good acid backbone. Smoothly balances energy and weight and finishes with excellent clarity and mineral-driven persistence.
