Robert Parker recently called this Sauvignon Blanc "one of the best sauvignons I've ever tasted" and we couldn't agree more! This is not your typically lean Sauvignon Blanc - it explodes from the glass with beautiful ripe peach, melon and grapefruit; a ripe, juicy glass of wine. If you enjoy this style, don't pass up the chance to try this delicious wine!
The 2001 Sauvignon Blanc was ripened fully and harvested at 24.8 brix. It was fermented using all native yeasts. The fermentation was 100% in barrel, just 10% new in order to feature the vineyard and the concentration of its fruit. No malolactic.
The wine has ripeness of fruit with pineapple and floral aromas and flavor. It is plush and full in the palate. It combines depth and concentration with clear and focused Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Musque expression. 285 cases produced.
