Winemaker's Notes

The home ranch on the western side of High Valley has been known as "High Serenity Ranch" for over one hundred years. The 2005 Sauvignon Blanc comes from the original 20 acre blocks which were planted in 2001. These vineyards are comprised of gravelly loams and are some of the coolest growing conditions in High Valley.

Cooler growing conditions allow for longer grape hang-times enhancing flavor development, and better acid retention in the juice and finished wine. 11% Semillon from a new, young vineyard was blended to add more body to the mid-palate prior to bottling. Citrus aromas with a hint of mineral are intertwined by complex bouquets of gooseberry, grapefruit and a hint of fresh tarragon. The wine has good weight on the palate, is framed by a good acid backbone, and finishes crisp and smooth.
