2018 Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc, the noble varietal primarily responsible for white Bordeaux and Sancerre, is prized for its citrus and herbal flavors, and as well as refreshing acidity.
Drawing from vineyards in Monterey’s Arroyo Seco and San Lucas districts provides a nice combination of cooler and slightly warmer climate fruit sources. Bright acidity and grassy characters from the north are complemented by citrus and tropi-cal flavors from the south.
The juice was tank fermented to preserve bright fruit flavors. Following fermenta-tion, the wine was transferred to French oak barrels (of which 11% were new) for 5 months of aging.
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc features aromas of grapefruit, lime zest, and subtle gun flint. Flavors of pomelo and green peppercorn are lively and refreshing. A small touch of oak accents this medium body, high acid wine, by adding elegant texture to a long finish. An incredibly versatile wine, it’s a natural match for shellfish, seafood, and lighter summer fare.
