WINEMAKING NOTES

pH = tbd, TA = tbd, Alc = 12.4%

Our Sauvignon Blanc fruit is grown at the front of our property along with a south easterly facing, lower sloping blocks where the  climate   stays  slightly cooler  and  milder  then  our  higher hilltop vineyards.  The 2016 vintage brought a warmer then average spring and early summer balanced with the warm days and cool nights of July and August.  The conditions allowed for small berries, with average yields.  The fruit reached perfect physiological ripeness retaining natural grape acidity resulting in very balanced wines with low alcohol and rich concentrated varietal flavors. Fermentation was carried out primarily in stainless steel and matured in a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral French oak barrels for just under six months.  The wine was bottled in February 2017 and released soon after.

TASTING NOTES

The finished wine exhibits aromas of citrus and tropical fruit with a hint of fresh apple blossom, fine oak, and pear.  In the mouth, the wine is bright and tight with luxurious persistence.  The ripe rich Semillon complements the tight structure of Sauvignon Blanc.  In the mouth the wine portrays the minerality of our soils with hints of plantain, lemon zest and grapefruit, a bit of freshly cut grass and a touch of vanilla.  The finish is crisp, elegant, and fresh.  There are exotic white flower notes in the empty glass.  Pairs well with grilled white fish, shellfish, roasted herbed chicken, and goat cheese.
