Crisp acidity is at the forefront of our 2005 Sauvignon Blanc, followed by refreshing flavors of citrus, gooseberry and a hint of kiwi. Made to be consumed upon release, this is a wine that is delicious on its own, and will also pair well with a variety of dishes, including grilled spiced chicken, steamed fish, and vegetable quiche.
We fermented the grapes for our Moon Mountain Vineyard 2005 Sauvignon Blanc in both stainless steel (66%) and French oak (33%). The wine then underwent sur-lie aging for five months, with batonnage every two weeks. Malolactic fermentation was arrested to retain the crisp and refreshing natural grape acidity.
