Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The 2017 growing season was full of extremes starting with one of the wettest springs in a long time. This provided saturated soil profiles to start the season and plenty of water to get vigor in the vines. Relatively mild conditions during berry set allowed for closer to normal crops in the season. Heat in late August kicked harvest into full swing particularly with the early varieties. With great farming and team work, we were able to get the fruit into the winery at optimal flavors and ripeness levels.
Production Notes
The grapes were harvested from September 1 – 7, 2017 and then whole cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel to retain aromatics. The wine was cold fermented at 62°-64°.
Winemaker Notes
Our sauvignon blanc comes from a combination of vineyards in the Russian River and Sonoma valleys. the warm days and cool evenings of these regions are perfect for our style of Sauvignon Blanc: fruit-driven with a backbone of lip-smacking acidity. About 30% is made up of the Musqué clone of Sauvignon Blanc to really “power up” and highlight the floral aspects of the wine (think X-men). This 2017 Sauvignon Blanc opens with a fragrant nose of floral citrus blossom. Its moderately weighted palate of green apple, white peach, orange, jasmine and lilac notes charm the senses. A balanced finish of floral and citrus zest bring bright acidity and a hint of sea salt packs a flavorful finish.
