2018 Firestone Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Ynez Valley
Our 2018 Barrel Select 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 expresses tropical aromas of pineapple and citrus blossom. Crisp refreshing flavors of pineapple-guava and citrus characters are coupled with bright lively acidity followed by a hint of minerality on the finish.
