Winemaker's Notes

Michael Griva planted this special vineyard for Bernardus in the Arroyo Seco appellation, which sits just south of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation in the Salinas Valley. The soils are very sandy and rocky which, along with the sunny, breezy climate, produce exceptional grapes with pronounced varietal character accented by a note of minerality. The Griva Sauvignon Blanc vineyard is planted exclusively with the Musqué clone of Sauvignon Blanc which is highly prized for its intense aromatic and flavor expression. We are now very happy to be able to include a small Semillon component coming from our recent planting at the Griva vineyard. Although only 5% of the blend, we feel that this adds an extra note of richness and complexity to the finished wine.

Our 2012 Griva Sauvignon Blanc exhibits aromas of ripe tropical fruits accented by notes of lime zest and grapefruit. On the palate we find luscious flavors that mirror the aromas along with grassy notes and a crisp, refreshing acidity.
