2021 Lancaster Estate Samantha's Sauvignon Blanc, Alexander Valley
The winter of 2020-2021 had minimal rainfall and mild temperatures leading to drought conditions throughout California’s North Coast. With a warmer than average winter and spring, budbreak was two weeks ahead of normal. Summer was warm and dry, with a few short heat spikes. The warm weather resulted in beautifully ripened fruit and a fairly early harvest.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy alone as an aperitif or pair with grilled seafood and a fresh summer salad.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
The 2021 Samantha’s Sauvignon Blanc was fermented and aged for 6 months in a combination of stainless steel drums (47%), concrete egg (30%), and neutral French oak barrels (23%). The concrete egg method allows for constant circulation of the juice and imparts a minerality and texture to the wine. The wine was then bottled unfiltered in April 2022.
Grown 100% on our Alexander Valley estate, our Samantha’s Sauvignon Blanc showcases the very best of the varietal and the AVA.
