Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage of Two Angels Sauvignon Blanc was hand sorted twice; once before de-stemming and once after. Then the wine went through extended cold fermentation (three weeks at 50F) to preserve the natural, vibrant fruit characteristics of the grape. Midway through fermentation, the wine was racked, resulting in a wine that displays a complex blend of melon, citrus blossom, fennel, and honeysuckle. Elegant and balanced, the 2005 vintage has a clean, crisp, long finish. Serve slightly chilled, a great accompaniment to fish and shellfish.

About Two Angels:

Two Angels, a line of Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Petite Sirah owned by the Kreps family, with grapes coming from the renowned Shannon Ridge vineyards in the High Valley AVA, Lake County, California.

The label art for Two Angels was created by Jacob de Backer in 1591 and the theme is the hilarity of inebreation and the trauma of the morning after. Excessive joy must be countered by equally excessive sorrow, with penitential atonement for pleasure.
