This vintage was a more typical harvest, that featured long hang time for great flavor development. The cooler, longer harvest accentuates the spicy, citrus elements. This, combined with the naturally balanced acid, gives this wine a long structure and great texture making it a refined and delicate, classic Sauvignon Blanc. Since, our first vintage in 1998, this is the most interesting.
This Sauvignon Blanc offers citrus, stone fruit (peach) and pear characters both in aroma and taste. The wine is fully textural with good fruit and body in the mid palate. The finish, being a little more structural, gives excellent length and delivery.
