Winemaker's Notes

This wine is creamy on the palate with stone-fruit aromas, enhanced by lightly lime-like qualities of the Musque clone of Sauvignon Blanc. Three distinct lots were blended for this wine: barrel fermented and aged; stainless steel fermented and filtered to maintain newly fermented freshness; and stainless fermented sur lie with lees stirring. Seafood, light pasta and poultry pair well with this wine It also is appealing as a palate cleanser at the close of a meal. The blend is 94% Sauvignon Blanc and 6% Semillon.
