We ferment the juice in stainless steel tanks to preserve the wonderful freshness and character of the grapes.  With the exception of this Sauvignon Blanc, all our other white wines spend some time in barrel.  Additionally, the wine does not go through malo-lactic fermentation.  This helps to preserve the crisp acidity and fresh fruit flavors in the wine.



WINE STYLE & TASTING NOTES



Winemaking for this varietal is straightforward. The grapes are picked early morning (before dawn), delivered in the coolest part of the morning, crushed and pressed off the skins. The juice is then settled for 24 hours and racked off the lees. The fermentation begins at a cool 50 degrees and finishes up about 3 weeks later. The stainless steel fermentation and aging preserves the freshness of this wine. This Sauvignon Blanc shows off the great growing region of Lake County, aromas are of guava and citrus zest, with flavors of passionfruit, pineapple, and pink grapefruit.



FOOD PAIRINGS



Pair this wine with marinated shrimp, grilled sea bass with asparagus and hollandaise, or a simple crostini of chevre and lemon zest.
