Description

Wine:
"Aromas of lime, kiwi, and gooseberry; with a hint of sweet pea and jasmine. The mouth is delicate, but rich; with flavors of lemon, grapefruit, and lychee. Bright acidity provides a zesty finish of citrus, mineral, and spice." - Winery

Winemaking:
"All of the fruit was picked cold and whole cluster pressed. The juice was clarified and slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine remained in tank on the lees (sur lie) for an additional 3 months. This wine was bottled in February 2012." - Winery

Vintage:
"2011 was the third in a string of unpredictable vintages...Cool and wet springtime conditions affected berry set and reduced yields by 20%. Cool weather continued throughout the growing season, slowly brining the smaller crop to maturity. Rains in early October forced a quick end to harvest. Despite the challenges, the wines of 2011 have bright aromas and flavors with beautiful finesse and intensity." - Winery

Winery:
"The Carneros area of Napa valley wasn't always known for its quality grape growing. Before the early 1960's when a few brave pioneers moved in, the area was more commonly known for its sheep and cattle ranches that dotted the area; hence the name "Los Carneros," a Spanish term which translates as "The Rams" in English. We choose the name "The Shepherd" in honor of the land's history. Sauvignon Blanc was first planted on this property in 2001 and has created elegant, well balanced wines since 2003." - Winery
