(2014 Vintage) The Sauvignon Blanc is a refreshing wine with citrusy lemon, tart apple and sweet melon flavors and aromas. It is a nicely balanced wine with good weight and a clean finish. 70% of the fruit was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and 30% in new French oak barrels.The barrel-fermented portion was aged for only six weeks. Utilizing both tank and barrels for fermenting accentuates the crisp fruit flavors and increases complexity. 9% Semillon was blended in for enhanced sweet, round flavors and mouth-feel.
