2017 Vintage Notes: Record setting rainfall was followed by a wide variety of weather conditions keeping growers busy. Extreme heat in early September accelerated ripening, which led to a hectic harvest producing aromatic, condensed flavors with higher acidity.
Winemaking Notes: The wine was cold fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks in order to maintain the high fruit profile. Alchemy 1 yeast was used to preserve and develop the floral and and fruity esters and thiols that are characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc.
Tasting Notes: This Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc is refreshingly crisp and lively with hints of boxwood and white peach. Citrus flavors of grapefruit and guava are harmoniously balanced with the bright acidity typical in the Dry Creek Valley. The result is a truly enjoyable and quaffable Sauvignon Blanc.
