2018 Sauvignon Blanc, Ballard Canyon Estate
This 2018 vintage of Sauvignon Blanc marks our second 100% Ballard Canyon Estate Sauvignon Blanc. After arriving at the winery in the early morning, 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 aromas, suggesting both white nectarine and passionfruit. These merge with flavors of caramelized pineapple & jasmine blossom, underscored by a hint of slate, with a finish on the palate that is both full and fresh.
