2012 Sauvignon Blanc

2012 Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaker Notes

Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from the estate property in Southern Dry Creek Valley. The vines are meticulously farmed to provide ample sunlight to the berries. This technique  results in vibrant Sauvignon Blanc aromas while balancing grass notes. Our location at the southern end of Dry Creek provides ample cool fog from our neighboring Russian River Valley.

Harvest is always very early in the morning so the grapes are delivered to the winery while cold. They are crushed, pressed then fermented in stainless steel tanks between 53°F and 60°F.  The wine is allowed to age on the lees for 3 months and is then blended and bottled the following spring.

Tasting Notes

Bursting with aromas of guava, honeysuckle, & peach, our 2012 Sauvignon Blanc is rich yet balanced with ample acidity. Flavors are of grapefruit, lime, with a touch of mineralality.
