The goal with Sauvignon Blanc is to harvest the fruit during the small window of time in which the varietal shows its most favored characteristics. For Noble Vines, we pick the moment the Sauvignon Blanc shows a perfect balance between grass, kiwi and melon notes, with citrus qualities at their peak. The minute our winemaker, James Ewart, determines that the grapes are ready, we hand-pick our grapes immediately, bringing them to the winery for a gentle pressing. Having our winery right in the vineyard is an advantage in that the delicate aromas and flavors are instantly preserved after harvest. Once pressed, the juice is transferred into stainless steel tanks. Special yeasts are the added to the juice to enhance the aromas and flavors of 242 Sauvignon Blanc during fermentation.
The 2015 vintage of 242 Sauvignon Blanc exhibits aromas of bright citrus and ripe peach. Medium-bodied with a round mid-palate and crisp acidity, this refreshing wine offers flavors of honeydew melon, white nectarine and Granny Smith apple on the palate, before extending into a zesty, lingering finish.
