The Knights Valley AVA is protected from the marine influence of the Pacific Ocean, making it the warmest AVA in Sonoma County. The vineyards on the estate range from 400-800 feet in elevation and are located just north of Calistoga and east of Alexander Valley, on the foothills of Mount St. Helena. The unique topography and soil content make this a most desirable area to grow Bordeaux and Northern Rhône grapes. The soil consists of well drained, very gravelly and sandy loams formed from mixed sedimentary and basic rock. production of 440 cases" -WINERY
The painstaking effort with which we crafted this singular expression of Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc was worth every last second of the month-long ferment. Utilizing an extremely low temperature tactic allowed us to enhance and concentrate the fruit expression this grape variety is so famous for. On the nose, tree-ripened Satsuma mandarin zest immediately blasts out of the glass! This enticing aroma continues onto the palate coupled with a minerality expressing the terroir of the wine's noble origin. The lively zip of acidity that follows awakens the senses from the cornucopia of fruit that preceded, allowing more attention to be focused on the underlying notes of key lime pie and juicy crane melon. This forward presentation is followed by a clean, long finish that is reminiscent of biting into a ripe nectarine while relaxing on a hot summer day.
