2017 Firestone Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Ynez Valley
Our 2017 Santa Ynez Sauvignon Blanc is 100% estate grown. Fermenting and aging in stainless steel allows the integrity of the fruit to shine with minimal manipulation. This clean, refreshing wine displays aromas of Ruby Red Grapefruit and a hint of boxwood. Crisp refreshing flavors of Meyer lemon and Key lime are coupled with bright crisp acidity followed by a hint of minerality on the finish.

The 2017 vintage began with an early budbreak followed by an extremely mild spring and summer season, perfect conditions for longer hang time and more intense flavor development. Harvest kicked off with our first pick on August 31 and extended to October 27th. All of our fruit is harvested in cool temperatures to ensure cold fruit at pressing.
The Santa Ynez Valley is located just two hours north of Los Angeles and five hours south of San Francisco, adjacent the cold Pacific Ocean. With the greatest concentration of wineries in Santa Barbara County - roughly 18% of its total land planted to vineyards - it is among the favorite weekend destinations for wine aficionados in the Central Coast region.
