This Sauvignon Blanc is one of my favorites! What is different about this Sauvignon Blanc is that it’s not from New Zealand! This outstanding wine is from Sonoma County in CA, and it is terrific! Crisp, fresh, and slightly acidic. You won’t be sorry you tried this!
The 2018 vintage will be one described by poets and songwriters…it was a season of dreams. The harvest began in earnest the second week of September, which is considered normal in most years, but it would seem late for the past three or four harvests. The season was of almost perfect pace and timing, with fruit ripening on a gradual scale, which allowed for a much more relaxed tenor to the usual more frantic time of year. The term “hang-time” gets used a lot in describing harvests, but 2018 sure proved to be the harvest of hang-time—a moderate summer leading to a moderate fall weather pattern allowed for full flavor development across all varieties.

The making of the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc utilized traditional methods of hand harvesting and whole bunch pressing to ensure the highest quality juice. The South African yeast Alchemy II was used for fermentation. This yeast strain imparts fresh gooseberry and grassiness to the wine that balances the palate and finishes’ fresh fruit components. If you close your eyes and sip, you may see visions of the Loire Valley or perhaps the Marlborough region of the South Island of New Zealand. 100% neutral French oak was used to barrel age this wine for four months.
