"This is a fruity and fresh-tasting wine that's light to medium in body, very aromatic and has flavors like a fruit salad of apples, melons and peaches with a dash of lemon juice. All that fruitiness verges on sweetness, so dry-wine stalwarts beware." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Tasting Notes:
Our Sauvignon Blanc is a golden straw color and displays aromas of melon, orange blossom, grass and a touch of tropical notes. On the entry, citrus grapefruit acidity integrates well with a medium body mid palate mouth feel. The kiwi and peach flavors evolve into a hint of minerality that adds complexity to the finish.

Winemaking Notes:
Our Sauvignon Blanc fruit was 100% whole-cluster pressed to minimize astringency from the skins. Once settled, a portion of the juice was placed in small neutral French oak barrels, while the majority was moved to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. This combination allows the wine to develop a balanced level of crispness. The wine in barrels is sur lie aged and stirred consistently. The final blend was a combination of lots that provided a perfect balance of richness, bouquet and mouth feel.
