Hailing from old-vine Sauvignon blanc vines from Venturi and Upton vineyards in Mendocino County, is not your typical Sauvignon blanc, but has plenty of Sauvignon blanc typicity. Fresh tropical aromas are cut with a green minerality and bright and fresh acidity.

Vinification: Whole clusters were pressed directly. The juice was allowed to settle overnight and decanted off the grape solids. The juice fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. No sulfur or inoculation was made at this point and the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations were 100% indigenous. The wine was blended in January for a bottling in February following the harvest. It was bottled with no fining or filtration. 18ppm total SO2.

Tasting Notes: The mouthfeel is characterized by laser-like acidity, while the aromas and flavors strike a balance between greenness and riper opulence, resulting in a style that is uniquely Californian. The old-vines give this Sauvignon blanc an additional dimension of depth and complexity. The minimalistic approach in the cellar lends a wine that is highly drinkable and digestible.
