The grapes for our Sauvignon Blanc showcase two vineyards in the Ballard Canyon appellation. Complementing fruit from our estate vineyard are grapes from our nearby neighbor, Stolpman Vineyard. The grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed and then cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the crispness and varietal characteristics. The wine was bottled in January 2014 and released the following month.
This beautifully-dry white wine is perfumed with aromas of honeydew melon, pears and spun sugar. These aromas merge with flavors of Meyer lemon and pineapple on the palate and finish with a sensation that is both fruity and crisp.
