Tasting Note: 

"The 2018 release is a nod to a fine white Bordeaux. The aromatics begin with candied orange and honeyed fig and then evolve to develop into flavors of bitter orange marmalade, pomelo grapefruit, more citrus (less tropical) notes, a mild grassiness, and a tiny amount of freshly cut dill. A mix of new and neutral barrels add breadth and range while the stainless steel gives a freshness and “pop” of natural acidity. The mixture of herbs, fruits, and honey plus the refreshingly crisp palate make this wine delightful. Petrale sole would be grand as a pairing as would vegetarian potstickers or arugula salad with dill goat cheese and raspberries. This Sauvignon Blanc is also tasty with oysters or mussels. There’s no doubt in the cellaring potential (2024-2026) so enjoy now and hold some for later." 

Winemaking Notes: 

"Phased picking at different maturity levels brought natural acid, alcohol balance, and layers of aromas/flavors. Wholecluster pressing with limited controlled skin contact ensured balance. Cool fermentation with minimal lees contact in both tank and barrel added mouthfeel texture and allowed natural settling minimizing wine handling prior to bottling. No malolactic fermentation. Mix of French oak and acacia barrels with the latter contributing a bit more of the floral and spicy notes." 

Organically grown.
