Tasting Notes

The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc has once again restored our love for this varietal, but our now third vintage comes with a slight change from previous years! This year we have sourced from Ghielmetti like years past, but have added Donovan vineyards as well. The bright tropical, fruit forward characteristics we have come to expect from Ghielmetti are complimented and balanced perfectly by the citrus and grassy tones of Donovan. This wine is as bright and refreshing as ever. Bursting with ripe lemon, green apple, underripe white peach, passion fruit and tart pineapple followed by a vibrant and driven palate with a hint of minerality on the finish. A fan favorite every year, sauvignon blanc has quickly become a staple in our tasting room and has definitely found a permanent home amongst our ranks. Enjoy paired with chicken, oysters, scallops, your favorite summer meal or simply chilled on its own!

Production

Harvested between August 28th to the 30th from Ghielmetti and Donovan Vineyards. The fruit from each vineyard was whole-cluster pressed and fermented separately in stainless steel under glycol at low temperatures. The wines were blended after 3 months and underwent no ML conversion.
