Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The diversity of the vineyard locations selected in blending this wine are really expressed in the characters of this Sauvignon Blanc which grows exceptionally well in a variety of climates and soils. There are multiple appellations to provide the spectrum of fruit flavors that really provide the structure to this wine, 11% of which is from the Alexander Valley appellation located in Sonoma County, California.



Vineyards
Following a long growing season characterized by moderate temperatures throughout the spring and summer, California’s 2018 harvest played out like a dream. The harvest began about two weeks later than in previous years, but was more in line with normal timing in the years before the drought. The vintage shows exceptional quality, thanks to consistent growing conditions and cooler temperatures, which allowed the grapes to mature slowly.
