Bottled two months ago, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Dry Stack Vineyard gives expressive lemon curd, grapefruit and lime leaves notes with touches of wild thyme and white pepper. Medium-bodied, elegant, fresh and zippy, it's packed with citrusy goodness, finishing long with a mineral hint
Our approach to winemaking has remained constant since our first vintage. We inspect every grape after it has been removed from the stem. We discard every one that doesn’t meet our standards; typically sacrificing six to eight percent of our fruit during this process. From that stage on, every wine is crafted to maximize balance and textures. Each of our vineyards imparts their fruit with such pure flavors that we strive to bring all of the components into harmony.
All of our wines are aged in new French barrels, including Remond, Francois Freres and Gamba for our Syrahs and Darnajou and Taransaud for Cabernet Sauvignon. We evaluate each barrel of wine biweekly, allowing the wines to dictate to us how they are treated in terms of racking, barrel stirring, sulfur additions and bottling.
