Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc
Santa Barbara County, 2016

90 Vinous – September 2017


The grapes for our Sauvignon Blanc showcase two appellations in the Santa Ynez Valley – Happy Canyon and our own Ballard Canyon appellation. Complementing fruit from our estate vineyard are grapes Vogelzang Vineyard. The grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed and then cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the crispness and varietal characteristics.

This beautifully dry white wine is gifted with bright fruit flavors suggesting citrus blossom and passionfruit. These aromas merge with flavors of tangerine zest, underscored by a hint of grapefruit, and finishes on the palate with a sensation that is both fruity and crisp.
