2017 Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc
Meticulous farming and Mother Nature allowed us to harvest at peak ripeness. We fermented in a combination of small (250 gal) concrete egg, Acacia barrels, neutral French oak barrels, and small stainless-steel barrels. We kept it chilly in the cellar for a long cool fermentation, which enhances the fresh juicy fruit flavors and exotic tropical fruit notes. We stirred each barrel during the 10 months of fermentation and aging, which adds a touch of creaminess. Round and juicy, your first sip is reminiscent of a mid-summer day with luscious tropical fruit and fresh acidity. Crisp and refreshing on the finish, this mouthwatering wine leaves you wanting another sip.
It could be described as “California” in style. Just ripe enough to bring out the tropical fruit yet picked early enough to capture the crisp apple and Meyer lemon notes. The bright acidity is in balance with the lush fruit flavors and the essence of creaminess from the time spent on the lees.
