Pale gold in color, the nose is grapefruity with undertones of garden herbs. Sassy and crisp, citrusy lemon-lime flavors meld with green melon and a hint of ocean breeze. The finish is replete with a lovely minerality and a reminder of Granny Smith apple crisp. Enjoy now.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our largest blocks and our most prevalent plantings, Sauvignon Blanc flourishes here. Mostly Wente Clone 1, the east-west facing blocks enjoy warm sunny days and a diurnal shift of up to 40° to nighttime lows to retain natural acidity in the grapes. Like the Sauvignon blanc, the later-ripening Sémillon is one of the original 1983 plantings and on its own roots. The 2014 harvest was one of the earliest on record. Summer-like weather in January and no frost combined with continued drought conditions to accelerate the growing season. Serendipitously, the vines produced a balanced, beautiful and bountiful crop. The Sauvignon Blanc harvest began August 29th, with Sémillon coming in almost a month later on September 17th.
Production Notes
The Sauvignon Blanc is cold-fermented in stainless steel with malo-lactic fermentation inhibited. Conversely, Sémillon is barrel fermented in French oak (about 10% new) for about six months with ML neither inhibited or encouraged. The blend was determined and made, the wine fined with bentonite,, cold stabilized and then cross-flow filtered before bottling in house in June 2015. Vegan.
