Cases produced: 168
Retail Price: $25
Production: 50% Stainless Steel, 50% French Barrel Fermentation
Aging: 3 months neutral French oak 

The grapes were picked early in the morning on September 5, 2017, at cool temperatures.  After de-stemming and crushing, the grapes were pressed off the skins. Fermentation was conducted 50% in stainless steel between 54°F and 58°F, and 50% in barrels. Aging followed in French Oak for 3 months, which creates a rounder, richer more sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc.  This wine presents with a delightful apricot and pear nose, followed with flavors of dried apricots and mineral characteristics. The wine shows firm acidity. The finish is clean and crisp with lingering apricot notes.  Try this Sauvignon Blanc with lighter fish and pasta dishes. It is a perfect brunch or first course wine but works equally well as a stand-alone cocktail choice.
