98% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Semillon
Russian River Valley
100% Stainless Steel
The fruit for this Sauvignon Blanc was harvested at nighttime to ensure cold fruit at the time of pressing. Harvesting took place on September 18th, 2018. To maintain freshness and preserve the distinct characteristics of the varietal, we aged in 100% stainless steel and minimized exposure to the air, aiming to create a crisper, fresher style.
The 2018 growing season was one of the mildest and smoothest in recent memory. Mild spring weather led to good fruit set in most varietals and moderate weather throughout the year made for ideal growing conditions. ere were no major heat spikes, which gave us longer hang-time and great ripening on the vine. While a fairly long harvest, the 2018 crop delivered fruit with complex flavors and was of excellent quality.
