2013 Langtry Sauvignon Blanc, Lillie Vineyard, Guenoc Valley AVA
Gold Medal Winner - Lake County Wine Awards.
This 2013 displays crisp aromas of grapefruit and citrus peel that lead to flavors of lemon curd and citrus on the palate. A lively acidity is balanced with a full mouth-feel and vibrant intensity that lingers on the finish.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
August 20, 2013
50% Barrel Fermented (4 months in Neutral Barrels), 50% Stainless Steel
Partially barrel fermented in 8-year-old neutral oak barrels, the 2013 Langtry “Lillie’s Vineyard” Sauvignon Blanc is made in our sur lie style for added texture and complexity. The grapes from the Lillie Vineyard demonstrate Sauvignon Blanc’s full potential due to the mild summer temperatures that helped keep acids high while still bringing the fruit to full maturity.
Like its namesake, Lillie’s Sauvignon Blanc is unique. Located west of the Langtry House, the five acre vineyard is unlike most Sauvignon Blanc plantings. Its restrictive, shallow, magnesium-laced soils produce small vines, leaves and berries, and thus, modest yields for a vigorous variety. The fruit is concentrated and very complex.
