    Tasting Notes:
    This Sauvignon Blanc from our Horse Heaven Vineyard is a crisp, racy style of Sauvignon Blanc with citrus characteristics. We use partial stainless steel fermentation to preserve the Sauvignon Blanc’s pure, fresh, vibrant character. - Bob Bertheau, Winemaker

    Vintage:
    The 2016 vintage experienced the best of both worlds with a hot spring and early summer, but also a cool fall season.
    Cooler temperatures in August and September, slowed down ripening and resulted in longer hang time for the grapes and the longest harvest on record in Washington State (August 15-November 15).
    Overall, 2016 saw very favorable growing conditions, producing wines with ripeness and elegance.

    Winemaking:
    Yeasts specifically designated for Sauvignon Blanc were used to initiate the three-week fermentation and release varietal aromas.
    73% stainless steel fermented to preserve Sauvignon Blanc’s fresh, vibrant fruit character.
    27% barrel fermented for slight spice and texture in older French oak.
    Sur lie aged for four months for enhanced complexity and structure.
