Winemaker's Notes

The spring of 2005 was very rainy, which slowed the usual early growth. A moderate and dry summer led to a mid-September start to harvest. The 2005 wines, of which the Sauvignon Blanc is the first to be bottled, are uniformly pure of fruit and elegant.

The 2005 vintage is filled with vibrant and pure Sauvignon Blanc varietal character: gooseberry, fresh cut hay, grapefruit, kiwi and quince. The palate is soft and supple on entry, with expansive fruit on the middle. Bright and refreshing acidity tempers the opulent and supple mouthfeel and finish.
