2018 Sauvignon Blanc
This product is currently sold out.
The 2018 growing season was longer and cooler than the previous year, but many of the tropical notes remain on this barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc. Eight months in oak with 20% new oak and 20% malolactic fermentation combine the varietal styles from France, New Zealand, and California. The Musqué clone provides incredible aromatics immediately with a tropical nose of white flower, honey, and lemon merengue pie. A round entry of peach pit, jasmine, and citrus highlight a racy acidity that carries to the back of the palate. This wine exhibits a texture and weight rarely found in Sauvignon Blanc, with a finish of honeysuckle, beeswax, and lime zest. Balance with a rich mouthfeel and layers that keep unfolding, this is a complex white wine suitable for aging and tailored for both collectors and red wine fans. Production: 150 Cases
