Club: $30.00 / 750ml bottle

The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon were harvested about three weeks apart. Both lots were sorted before being gently pressed to tank. The juices were cold-settled for 24 hours and then racked to a chilled tank. The juice was inoculated with different yeasts and barreled down to begin fermentation. After a three week fermentation the wine was arrested from undergoing the secondary malolactic fermentation. The heavy lees were stirred in barrel every four weeks for 9 months. After 9 months of aging in barrel the two wines were blended in tank and barreled down into carefully selected French Oak barrels (35% mew). After a total of 17 months of barrel aging the wine was minimally fined and filtered before being bottled.

Tasting notes

Yellow grapefruit and warmed honey, mix with aromas of Jasmine and Key Lime Pie. Soft and fleshy on the entry gives way to a great textured mouthfeel across the palate. Flavors of guava and honeysuckle are balanced out by a racy core of citrus fruits. The wine finishes with lemon marmalade on buttered toast flavor that opens up to reveal the true texture and minerality of this white blend. WINEMAKER Brandon Lapides
