Winemaker's Notes

Fortress Sauvignon Blanc is crisp, clean and luscious with fresh ripe fruit, complex aromas and flavors of vibrant citrus, key lime, kiwi, and melon and a refined creamy texture leading to a rich, long-lingering finish. It is a single vineyard wine made 100% from the Musque Clone grown at 2,000-2,400 feet. The combination of the high altitude and red volcanic soil lead to smaller bunches and grapes which capture more intense flavor. There is also a hint of minerality from the volcanic soils and cooling Lake influence. The Musque Clone is from Pont de la Maye in the center of the Bordeaux region and the Fortress Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc is made similar in taste and character to a fine white wine from Graves.
