About This Wine:

Another fantastic vintage of Sauvignon Blanc sourced from San Bernabe Vineyard in Monterey, California.  Monterey in general and this vineyard in particular has a great climate for Sauvignon Blanc. This site provides enough warmth for full flavor, but not excessive heat which could cause loss of acidity and aromatics.

Sauvignon Blanc, from our point of view, is best fermented entirely cool in stainless steel to capture its fresh melon and citrus flavor and aroma.  Cleanliness and protection from oxygen are key in capturing these characters.  Following a long, cool fermentation, the wine is given a light filtration through our pressure leaf filter. 

The flavor and aromas are classic - citrus, melon and gooseberry.  The finish is light and crisp, nicely balanced, and dry with cleansing acidity.  Beautiful with lighter fare like poultry or seafood.

Tasting Notes:

Bright and refreshing aromas with flavors of peach and melon. This vintage is has softer fruit and not as much traditional Sauvignon Blanc grassiness. The finish is nicely balanced.

Vineyard Notes:

We were able to source some great fruit from the Cole Ranch appellation in California. Cole Ranch is the smallest recognized appellation in North America at less then 1/4 square mile. This part of California produces Sauvignon Blanc with a melon characteristic rather than the grassy herbaceousness that is common with this variety.

Production Notes:

Fermented entirely cool in stainless steel to capture the grapes fresh tropical fruit flavor and aroma. Cleanliness and protection from oxygen are key in capturing these characteristics. Following a long, cool fermentation, the wine is given a light filtration through our pressure leaf filter. To this vintage, we added a touch of Gewurztraminer to accentuate the fruit qualities of this wine.

Food Pairing:

Perfect with grilled shrimp and veggies. This wine pairs nicely with creamy pasta dishes. A great match for goat cheese, this wine makes for a nice choice with appetizers.
