Winemaker's Notes

In 1996 the first Mason Sauvignon Blanc was released and was received with grand accolades from the press as well as the public. It was the first Sauvignon Blanc to receive a 91 (an unheard of score for Sauvignon Blanc) and the highest amongst 150 other wines from the Wine Spectator. The subsequent vintages have all followed with similar praise.

What distinguishes Mason's wines from all the others is that he enjoys and adheres only to making wines that are true to their varietal character. How he achieves this trueness and consistency is by using the same vines year after year and by spending much time in the vineyard prior to harvesting. Mason believes in letting the fruit show through in the wine and not to add a lot of processes and unnatural enhancements. He considers himself a California style winemaker.

"There are about 18,000 cases of Mason's 2001 Sauvignon Blanc, one of California's most delicious examples. It offers copious quantities of intense, exotic tropical fruits along with melons, figs, and herbs. This fruit bomb reveals surprising definition as well as character."
-The Wine Advocate
