This light to medium-bodied wine displays vibrant, finely balanced acidity with notes of lime and grapefruit on the nose and flavors of citrus and passionfruit on the palate. Fruit for our Sauvignon Blanc, principally sourced from our historic St. Helena estate, was hand-picked in the cool of night to ensure it reached the winery in pristine condition. The freshly picked grapes were cold-soaked on the skins for 6-8 hours, before going to press, a process that enhances the fruits natural aromatics. The wine was cold fermented slowly in stainless steel tanks to further its wonderfully aromatic bouquet and delicate flavor profile. Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc Aging: Stainless Steel tanks Vintage Information: The 2019 vintage was best characterized as a steady, even growing season, where our vineyard managers had the luxury of letting each estates crop leisurely mature to perfection. Preceded by a cool, wet spring, the season got off to a late start, running about 10 days behind a typical cycle. Accordingly, verasion started a bit late, followed by pretty even heat and ripening thereafter. For the second year in a row, the harvest began in August but extended well into November. Like 2018, it remained relatively warm and dry until we took in the last of our fruit on November 8th. Winemaker Stacy Clark noted that the average sized harvest yielded grapes with smaller berries and loose clusters which lends good color and concentration. Acidity levels are good, with moderate brix levels, and she is excited about the wines this vintage will produce.
