Our 2014 Mitsuko’s Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc displays intense aromatics of kiwi fruit, guava, passion fruit underlain by more subtle hints of cut-grass and cherry blossom. Focused yet expansive on the palate, the wine shows true balance between fresh fruit and natural acidity finishing crisp, clean and overwhelmingly refreshing.
Mitsuko’s Vineyard, located in the cool Carneros region, has proven over the years to have abundance of ideal sites for Sauvignon Blanc. Purchased by Clos Pegase as bare land in 1989, the winery has continued to refine the vineyard's plantings in order to maximize the site's potential, and subsequently, the Clos Pegase Sauvignon Blanc continues to evolve each year.
Picked and sorted in the vineyard, the grapes were destemmed and pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery, whilst they were still cool from the morning fog. To preserve the fresh aromatics, the juice was allowed to clarify overnight and then racked off the heavy lees and sent to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. A long cool fermentation took place lasting around three weeks. The wine was then aged sur lie in tank for a further four months before a light filtration and bottling.
