2019 Foley Johnson Handmade Sauvignon Blanc, Rutherford
Our 2019 Handmade Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc opens with aromas of lemon blossom layered with white peach, followed by a nice juicy palate with great structure. Tart lime flavors meld together with bright acidity for a refreshing and delicious aftertaste.
The grapes were harvested in the morning hours on August 19, 2019. The fruit came from our Estate vineyard block 1 and was skin soaked which allows the skins to touch the juice for 24 hours to extract more color and aromatics. The juice was then fermented and aged in both neutral French oak and our concrete egg tank.
