Winemaker's Notes:

Light-bodied, dry, and refreshing, this wine lights up your taste buds with abundant flavors of zesty lemon-lime and tropical fruit. Well balanced with bright acidity, it sparks a clean, crisp finish that pairs perfectly with oysters, tossed salads, light fish, and chicken.

100% Sauvignon Blanc

My Notes:

About Airfield Estate:

Great wines begin in the vineyard! Airfield Estates uses 100% estate grown fruit. Our first vines were planted in 1968 by Don Miller. Today, the estate vineyard spans over 860 acres and includes 26 different varieties.

The vineyard is located at the foot of the Rattlesnake Mountains in the Yakima Valley. All of the vineyard blocks are situated within a 3 mile radius of the original WWII airbase. Within this range, there is a considerable amount of diversity of soil and microclimatic conditions. To maximize quality, we carefully match grape varietals to the most suitable sites. The interaction of our geographic, climatic, and environmental conditions in conjunction with our vineyard management directly affect the quality and personality of our wine.
