2020 Estate Sauvignon Blanc

$28.00 / 750 mL

Club: $21.00 / 750 mL

The Sauvignon Blanc (90%) and Pinot Gris (10%) were harvested early on a classic foggy Russian River Valley morning. The grapes were carefully sorted before being gently pressed to release only seventy percent of the amount of potential juice. Twenty-five percent of the juice was allowed to remain in contact with the grape skins for 24 hours
before pressing. Most of the juice was cold-fermented in a stainless steel tank while about ten percent was fermented in neutral French Oak The wine was aged on lees for about four months in both large puncheons and new Acacia oak barrels, before being gently fined and filtered for bottling.

Tasting notes

Summertime in a glass. Peaches, pear, guava and grapefruit aromas explode from the glass. Subtle hints of gooseberry, mango and pine needles add to the complexity of enticing aromas. The wine begins on the palate like taking a fresh bite out of a crisp pear. Sweet apricot and green apples dance along the tongue. The limey, textured finish is refreshing with just a hint of toasted cashews from the very small percentage of the wine fermented in oak Winemaker Brandon Lapides
