Our Sauvignon Blanc vineyards enjoyed beautiful conditions from Spring right through harvest in September. As usual, the majority of the grapes are from the Griva vineyard in the Arroyo Seco appellation of the Salinas Valley. This year we also selected grapes from a neighboring vineyard as well as from two vineyards a few miles to the south in slightly warmer locations. All our Sauvignon Blanc grapes are the highly prized Musqué clone. We also continue our tradition of adding a small addition of barrel fermented Napa Semillon to enhance roundness and complexity. A large majority of our lots are cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to enhance and protect the intense varietal characters of these special vineyards. The resulting blend is a wine which exhibits a rich mosaic of aromas and flavors typical of the great Sauvignon Blancs of the world.
Our 2008 expresses the finest varietal aromas of fresh grass, gooseberry, grapefruit and white peach with nuances of melon and our typical hints of Arroyo Seco minerality. The mouthfeel is round and full, with layers of grapefruit, lime and tropical fruit flavors which linger on the long, lush finish.
"Bright straw hue. Uplifting scents of white peach and Granny Smith apple. Creamy acidity and juicy flavors of apple cider and nectarine. Hints of vanilla and toasted oak flesh out the lingering close."
The Wine News
Bernardus Winery was founded in 1990 in the Carmel Valley. Ben Pon's goal is to make red wines comparable to those of Bordeaux. To this end, he selected a mountain site in the Carmel Valley appellation to plant his Marinus Estate Vineyard. This site was chosen because of its unique joining of varied soils and sunny inland climate moderated by a marine influence - ideal conditions for the production of Bordeaux varietals.
