Winemaker's Notes

For the Monterey Sauvignon Blanc the grapes are sourced principally from the celebrated Griva vineyard, along with grapes from the neighboring San Saba vineyard. They are both in the Arroyo Seco appellation with its perfect combination of sandy, well-drained soils and warm, breezy climate. Both vineyards are planted with the renowned Musqué clone which provides the purest expression of Sauvignon Blanc aromas and flavors.

The vibrant aromas exhibit notes of ripe peach, tropical fruits and grapefruit along with hints of fresh grass. On the palate, the flavors are rich, crisp and intense, showing complex essences of lime, grapefruit and gooseberry, accented by mineral notes and a refreshing acidity.
