Winemaker's Notes

The 2005 Sauvignon Blanc marks the first vintage of 100 percent estate-grown fruit from the vineyards surrounding the winery. Grapes are all handpicked and pressed without crushing and destemming to give a fresh and clean distinctive characteristic. Cold fermentation in a high percentage of stainless steel barrels allows us to capture and display the zesty and fragrant flavors in the bottle. While a subtle textural richness is added by using a small percentage of new oak barrels, the fruit-forward nature is maintained.

"A delightful 2005. A supple, sumptuous, caressing style, with a silky texture and layers of rich yet elegant lemon-lime, ginger, pear and hazelnut. Beautifully balanced. Deep yet subtle. Refreshing, lively and persistent. Drink now."
