From the Winery

The fruit for this wine comes from premium growing sites in Sonoma and Napa counties that offer abundant sunshine yet
moderate temperatures – ideal conditions for cultivating delicious Sauvignon Blanc.

An exceptionally dry and warmer than average start to the year ended with some spring rains and mild temperatures
through the summer. This allowed for a long, even ripening period. The majority of the fruit was picked before a brief heat
spike in early September. Sustainable farming practices used throughout the growing season were tailored to each block with the assistance of aerial photos produced using NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) technology. We picked at night when each block reached its optimal ripeness, preserving the natural acidity of this Sauvignon Blanc.

The grapes were gently whole cluster pressed while the fruit was still cool. The majority of the juice was fermented in
stainless steel tanks, while the remainder fermented in a combination of French oak barrels and concrete tanks, imparting
weight and texture to the finished wine. The wine was bottled with a screw cap closure to preserve the freshness and
vibrancy found in this Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of Key lime, honeydew melon, and passion fruit all jump out of the glass supported by hints of freshly cut grass in the background. Those fresh lime and honeydew flavors continue to the palate, joined by kiwi and subtle herbaceous notes, all mingling together in a lively way. The wine is linear and focused, ending with enticing, mouthwatering acidity that will leave you wanting more.
