Vineyard Location: The grapes for this wine come from Bob Dempel’s vineyard in the northern part of the Russian River appellation.
Vintage Conditions: The 2018 season started slowly with little pressure from weather extremes, allowing for a long hang time developing ripeness and flavor. Temperate warm days and cooler nights enabled optimal brix and pH. This vintage has the all the makings of a greatness; fruit quality has been excellent due to the superb growing season and late harvest.
Winemaking Notes: The wine was cold fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks in order to maintain the high fruit profile and to preserve and develop the esters and thiols that are characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc.
Tasting Notes: This Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc is refreshingly crisp, the bouquet perfumed with hints of green apple and white peach. A fine mineral edge frames citrus flavors of key-lime and grapefruit, while lively acidity provides a polished, lingering finish.
