Our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is as tropical as any we have ever produced. Pineapple, guava, ripe citrus and floral notes attack you in waves. The thing that makes this Sauvignon Blanc stand out is its amazing richness, concentration and silky mid-palate textures. This is a wine that you will want to be enjoying from Spring through Fall, so be sure to secure enough to get you through until the next release.
Our approach to winemaking has remained constant since our first vintage. We inspect every grape after it has been removed from the stem. We discard every one that doesn’t meet our standards; typically sacrificing six to eight percent of our fruit during this process. From that stage on, every wine is crafted to maximize balance and textures. Each of our vineyards imparts their fruit with such pure flavors that we strive to bring all of the components into harmony.
All of our wines are aged in new French barrels, including Remond, Francois Freres and Gamba for our Syrahs and Darnajou and Taransaud for Cabernet Sauvignon. We evaluate each barrel of wine biweekly, allowing the wines to dictate to us how they are treated in terms of racking, barrel stirring, sulfur additions and bottling.
