Winemaker's Notes

Our Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from two vineyards on the central coast. A majority of the fruit comes from the Edna Valley, near San Luis Obispo. This vineyard has a cooler climate than that of Paso Robles and has deep, sandy soils with high fertility. The plants have full canopies and are aggressively pruned and shoot thinned to expose sunlight to the clusters. The cooler climate Sauvignon Blanc exhibits characteristics of a grassy style wine. The other vineyard is located on the steep hillsides of Paso Robles. The vineyard consists of heavy limestone soils and has a lack of fertility and vigor. The goal is to promote growth and canopy and prevent the hotter sun of Paso Robles from sunburning the grapes. The result is wine with high acidity and tropical fruit flavors.

Tasting Notes
Grassy, lemon and orange rind aromas combine with a crisp, acidic entry. Citrus and stone fruit flavors fill the mid palate and the finish ends with a touch of mineral component.
