Winemaker's Notes

The 1997 Sauvignon Blanc includes a blend of 16% Semillon, which contributes rich melon-like qualities to the floral and herbal character of Sauvignon Blanc. After fermentation, half the wine went into French oak barrels where it was aged for 4 months. Winemaker Chuck Ortman used French oak from several coopers and forests to achieve a harmony of tasty aromas and flavors.
