Beautiful aromas of pink grapefruit, honeysuckle and lime, a round mid palate and crisp, long finish make this wine a perfect match with sushi, fresh seafood or spicy Asian cuisine. We also blended a touch of Muscat Canelli to heighten aromatics and fill out the mid-palate.
Wine Maker Notes
We harvested this Sauvignon Blanc in the middle of the night, because the cooler temperatures lock in essential acidity and phenols that we desire in our white wines. A whole cluster balloon press approach gently extracts juice from the berries and skins with little manipulation. We settle the juice overnight, rack and begin what was a 9-day fermentation process. We finished the wine with another rack and blended 8% Muscat from Lake County after 4 months settling in a stainless steel tank.
