Chalk Hill Estate Vineyard & Winery Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley

Wine Details

Wine Description

Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc captures the character of the variety, the complexity of our site and the coolness of the vintage. The nose offers peach, mango, Butterscotch Melon and lemon. The flavors add mango, passion fruit, and Musque to the mix. While this Sauvignon Blanc is ripe and powerful, it also possesses the ample structure and acidity to age.

    To take advantage of our diverse estate terroir and to create a more complex wine we have planted nine clones of Sauvignon Blanc and two clones of Sauvignon Gris. The wine is entirely barrel fermented; regular lees stirring during and post fermentation added a soft creamy element.
