100% whole-cluster, skin-fermented Sauvignon Blanc from Farina on Sonoma Mountain. The growing season leading to harvest was perfect-- some late Spring rains to guarantee bounty, but not so late that they interfered with flowering or fertilization; constant warmth during maturation but with no heat spikes at all; we harvested early, without haste or pressure. And the fruit was explosively strong in flavor; almost nutty, but with very good acidity. We fermented the Prince this year in three separate lots; each with its own very individual character. One lot went weird right from the beginning and developed a Jackson Pollock-like coat of molds on the surface; one seemed like its fermentation was going to stall; the third was perfect from the beginning, fragrant, rich, and timely in its fermenting.
