Terroir: “Turn in the road” Vineyard located in the Big Valley AVA of Lake County. At elevations over 1400 ft the warm day time conditions and cool evenings are perfect conditions for ripe Sauvignon Blanc flavor yet retention of crisp SB acidity.
Winemaking: Harvested on the 18th of September the grapes were de-stemmed and sat on the skins for 24-36 hours. The next day we pressed it to tank and started fermentation. Fermentation lasted nearly 40 days. We then aged the SB in tank on its lees stirring bi-weekly. The wine was bottled un-filtered and un-fined.
Tasting Notes: Lemon peel and grapefruit, intertwined with honey dew, pear and melon. The mouthfeel is rich and textured without losing its natural acidity.
