The grapes for this wine come from the Sauvignon Blanc block on our estate property. The grapes were hand harvested August 28th, 2008. The sugar was 24.4 degrees Brix and had a pH of 3.32. After settling, the juice was racked then inoculated with QA23 yeast, then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 56º F. The young wine was allowed to sit on the lees for 6 weeks, then racked, filtered and bottled in March of 2009.
Pale straw color. Delightful notes of grapefruit and passion fruit with a touch of honeysuckle. Richly flavored with ripe citrus and hints of tropical fruits. Bright acidity with a medium body and lingering finish.
