Winemaking Notes

The 2020 sauvignon blanc is a hypothetical assemblage of the three distinct styles of Sauvignon Blanc: California’s Fume Blanc, New Zealand Marlborough and Loire valley’s Pouilly Fume.

Our Sauvignon Blanc comes together like an NFL playbook and shows that beautiful balance of gooseberry, herbaceous and green notes while the slight tropical side of this noble grape variety pokes its head out here and there with guava and passionfruit suggestions. Bergamot orange rind notes greet you on the nose. Tart orchard fruits come later in waves. The partial skin contact before pressing, along with the use of both stainless steel, neutral oak and a different élevage regime for each vessel, resulted in a complex wine that is a pleasure for both the palate and the intellect. A truly unique expression of Sauvignon Blanc that captures the spirit and sense of place of our celebrated wine region.
