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.
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.
