Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Aromas of key lime pie, white nectarine, pink grapefruit, honey crisp apples, white melon, lemon zest & lemon verbena tea, with hints of cherimoya. A crisp, textural mouthfeel with bright acidity. e addition of Sémillon gives a smooth texture, with a nice lingering nish. ere is a slight int element that comingles with stone fruit and wet river rock.

Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 87% Sauvignon Blanc and 13% Sauvignon Musque. Mother Nature was very kind in 2007. Not too warm, yet warm enough for the grape to flourish. These perfect growing conditions allowed for a long growing season resulting in optimal ripeness. Preserving the aromatics of this grape throughout the winemaking process is challenging, but we are able to continue to craft a truly refined Sauvignon Blanc rich with character.

    Vastly preferred over its older mate listed below, this bright and well-defined bottling starts with properly grassy, green-melon aromas and follows with bright, citrus and herb flavors. A touch on the stiff and angular side at the moment and thus suited to service with shellfish in the immediate term, it should smooth out with time in the cellar and should hold nicely over the next two or three years.
