"Our Sauvignon Blanc is made entirely from our 50 acre Slusser Road Vineyard. A dry winter and a very dry spring were followed by a moderate summer. Our Sauvignon Blanc grapes were hand harvested at night using tractors fitted with lights. The cold fruit was picked into half-ton bins and hauled the short distance to the winery in the morning. At this point we hand sorted the fruit using a custom made sorting conveyor. The fruit was then whole cluster pressed while still cold. The Malolactic fermentation was conducted early to prevent development of buttery aromas. We grow and vinify our Slusser Road Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc to be fresh, vibrant, and evocative of the grapes themselves. We have chosen a tin lined screwcap closure, which is unsurpassed in its ability to retain our wine’s exuberance.
Color: vibrant straw with a tinge of green. Aroma: The wine is fresh and quaffable with distinctive lime, grass and grapefruit. Taste: Our Estate Sauvignon Blanc emphasizes fruit in the aromas and mid palate with a finish broadened by malolactic fermentation." -Winery
