The Sauvignon Blanc from Mt. Veeder comes from three different clones. Clone 1, the most traditional clone used in California, has classic acidity and structure, a Musque clone that delivers amazing floral aromatics and a special French clone 530 which has ripe melon and tropical notes and adds a rich viscosity to the wine.
"Charles Thomas blends sauvignon and semillon from the gravelly clay loam soils of Rudd's vineyard on Mt. Veeder. He doesn't inoculate the fermentation in any of the three vessels used: concrete eggs, wooden barrels and stainless steel barrels. In 2008, the blend produced a firm, luscious wine with compelling earthy character, a contrast of bright orange citrus notes and darker forest floor aspects. Oak builds the wine's textural weight without getting in the way of the fruit, rounding out the fruit-skin bitterness and setting up a match with boudin blanc."
Wine & Spirits
"Rudd's 2008 Sauvignon Blanc from Mt. Veeder is a brilliant effort. Composed of 87% Sauvignon Blanc and 13% Semillon aged in new and used French oak as well as stainless steel and concrete eggs, it offers up wonderful aromas of honeyed melons, subtle smoke, orange blossom, and a hint of gun flint. This medium-bodied Sauvignon has the texture of a top-notch white Burgundy and the aromatics of a complex Sauvignon. It should drink nicely for several years.
