Winemaker's Notes:

Rich, lifted aromas of grapefruit, kiwi, lime and fennel are encompassed by a subtle yet engaging toasted smoky note of new French oak. Crisp lychee and grapefruit flavors combine with green lime zest and a bright citrus appeal, while the toasted qualities of the barrel maturation have encouraged a full, rich mouth feel along with a subtle creaminess from the sur-lie maturation. This is a rich and flavorful Sauvignon Blanc.
