2019 Sauvignon Blanc
$0 / Bottle (750ml)
An early-ripening aromatic variety, Sauvignon Blanc is a natural fit for our estate vineyards in the cool climate of the Oak Knoll District. This thoughtfully made small-lot wine reflects not only our land and the vintage, but also our restraint in the cellar and our quest for balance and brightness in our wines.
The dormant season was wet with much more rain than usual before the skies cleared in April, just in time for budbreak. The weather in May was surprisingly cool and rainy again, slowing down the vine growth, and serving as a harbinger of the roller-coaster growing season that followed. The summer months alternated between warmer and cooler than average but, thankfully, the daily high temperatures rarely exceeded 100°F. September was warm and sunny, providing the perfect finish and all the grapes were in by mid-October.
