“A superior vintage for our Sauvignon Blanc, 2020’s combination of low winter rainfall followed by a long, warm growing season served to concentrate fruit flavors, heighten bright acidity and amplify our site’s signature aromatics.”

“Double Eagle Sauvignon Blanc’s distinct combination of verve and complexity results from our non-traditional mix of fermentation and aging vessels. To begin, grapes from our organically farmed estate vineyard are harvested early in the morning to retain fresh fruit flavors and aromatics. Once in the cellar, the grapes are whole cluster pressed and cold soaked before being cold fermented for three months in concrete egg and aged sur lie in a mix of concrete egg and French oak barrels. After final blending, the 2020 Double Eagle Sauvignon Blanc was bottled unfined in June of 2020. “

94 Points Wine Spectator –“A distinctive white, oozing with lanolin, honeysuckle and buttery lemon pastry notes up front. The richness is matched by fresh acidity and a core of bright citrus and stone fruit flavors, and the texture is equally supple and juicy. Drink now. 555 cases made.”

91 Points Jeb Dunnuck – “The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Double Eagle showed well, with a classy, crisp, medium-bodied style as well as textbook varietal notes of bright lime, honeyed minerality, and sappy, minty herbs. It’s balanced, impeccably made, and an impressive Sauvignon Blanc to enjoy over the coming couple of years.”

91 Points Wine Enthusiast – “Earthy and thick in lemon, grapefruit and pea shoot, this is from a cool-climate site and fermented and aged in both concrete egg and French oak barrel. Richly structured and nicely textured, it offers sophisticated elegance and balance.”
