Vineyard Notes: The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for this wine come from two well known Russian River Valley vineyards: Bob Dempel’s vineyard in the northern part of the Russian River appellation, and Gianquinta Vineyard on Hall Road, one of the later ripening Russian River Valley areas.
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. The two vineyards were fermented to completion separately and combined during racking in October.
Tasting Notes: This Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc is refreshingly crisp. The bouquet is perfumed with hints of green apple and white peach. A fine mineral edge frames citrus flavors of lime and grapefruit, while lively acidity provides a polished, lingering finish.
