Winemaker's Notes:

#82 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

This is real Sauvignon Blanc, crisp and clean; there are hints of melon, green grass, some fruit cocktail and a clear minerality on the nose.

About Margerum:

Margerum Wine Company is committed to working with the top vineyards in Santa Barbara County to produce small lots of premium wines. The winery is located in Los Olivos in the heart of California's beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. We are part of a growing group of vintners looking to return wine making to its previous form of production – hand-crafted and personal. Owner Doug Margerum and winemaker Doug "Scotty" Scott, craft world-class wine in a temperature controlled building that houses tanks, barrels, and a cold room that is perfect for our production size.

Our commitment is to create handmade wines with place and personality to them that are made to our own standards. We work within the connotations of nature, stressing individuality, and making a production on a human scale. We strive to make wines that we personally enjoy and our hope is others will enjoy them as well. The approach to this is the antithesis of mass production.
