    Winemaker Notes

    One point of differentiation that was observed with the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc prior to harvest was the lower acidity levels. As the fruit developed, flavors were full and bright, but acids declined faster for the same potential alcohol seen in the past. With the goal to produce aromatic, vibrant, and fresh Sauvignon Blanc, the Star Lane winemaking team used several tools to ensure the consistency of freshness: slightly earlier harvest times, more stainless steel fermentation, and no secondary fermentation. All led to preservation of a classic Star Lane Sauvignon Blanc: clean, floral, fresh, and delicious.

    Founded in 1996, Star Lane Vineyard was birthed from a 250-year vision instigated by the Dierberg family. Ten years into patient exploration for land to sustainably cultivate world class Bordeaux varietals, founders Jim and Mary eschewed the common path and saw unrealized potential in the Happy Canyon area of Santa Barbara County. Now in our second of 10-generation plan, we carry on a legacy of sustaining land through crafting high quality wine.

    Since the early 19th century most of the acreage has been grazed to provide beef for local populations. This continues today and Star Lane Vineyard offers a slice of “old California” with ancient oak trees, pines, coastal chaparral, and numerous native plants. The Dierberg family planted east facing slopes in well drained silty-loam soils of various cobble content from magnesium rich serpentine to calcium/silica rich chert. Ranging from 750 to 1500 feet above sea level, it is one of the highest elevation vineyards in all of Santa Barbara County. The natural low vigor of the vines is excellent for developing flavors and depth in the wines while preserving freshness at reasonable potential alcohol levels.

    In 2013 President and Winemaker Tyler Thomas joined the team to further drive discovery of the property through wine cultivation. Our focus is on small lot fermentations, minimally handled, to help discover the inherent nature of this varied property. “Great wine is discovered, not made,” Thomas noted, “and the goal of the winery is to serve the vineyard and overall sustainability of the property.”

    By leveraging control over all our farming, a state-of-the-art facility, and simple winemaking designed to usher the fruit to the bottle, we produce numerous bottlings of certified sustainable Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Syrah from Star Lane Vineyard.

    Ranging from cool and foggy in the west to warm and dry in the east, the Santa Ynez Valley is a climatically diverse growing area. The most expansive AVA within the larger Santa Barbara County region, Santa Ynez is also home to a wide variety of soil types and geographical features. The appellation is further divided into four distinct sub-AVAs—Sta. Rita Hills, Ballard Canyon, Los Olivos District and Happy Canyon—each with its own defining characteristics.

    A wide selection of grapes is planted here—more than sixty different varieties, and counting. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir dominate in the chilly west, while Zinfandel, Rhône blends, and Bordeaux blends rule the arid east. Syrah is successful at both ends of the valley, with a lean and peppery, Old-World sensibility closer to the coast and lush berry fruit further inland.

    Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
