The flavors and aromas display an abundance of citrus notes including Meyer lemon, and ruby grapefruit. The citrus notes are nuanced and complemented by touches of jasmine, peach, and tropical fruits. With a lovely crisp finish, this wine is a complement to many foods, including Mediterranean, Asian, and Middle Eastern dishes.
The grapes were harvested during the cooler night-time and early morning temperatures, preserving the inherent aromas and flavors. All of the fruit was whole cluster pressed and the juice was settled overnight before racking off lees. The juice was fermented at moderately cool temperatures (60-65 F) in stainless steel tanks using a variety of yeast strains selected to enrich the aroma and flavor profiles of Sauvignon Blanc.
- 96% Sauvignon Blanc
- 3% Semillon
- 1% Muscat
- AGING: Aged on light lees, in stainless steel tanks, prior to blending and bottling.
There's good intensity to the vibrant lemon sherbet, Key lime pie and guava flavors. Fresh herbal details of lemongrass and lemon thyme linger on the juicy finish, with a touch of white pepper. - Wine Spectator Magazine 90 Points
