SKU: 2015 Sauvignon Blanc

We have a single acre of Sauvignon Blanc – an unruly and exuberant group of grapevines in the middle of our idyllic eastern-most “Lost Orchard” vineyard area, which overlooks Lake Hennessey, with Pritchard Hill on the far shore.  Whole cluster pressed, barrel fermented with wild native yeasts in stainless steel and used oak barrels, no malolactic fermentation, aged sur lies. We make this wine exactly the way we like it and are pleased to share what we don't drink ourselves.  100% Sauvignon Blanc; 121 cases made; closed with Saranex-lined screw caps.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
Crisp, dry and stylish, yet slightly more fruit-driven than the 2014. Like all of our Sauvignon Blancs, the wine shows trademark lychee and citrus peel along with wet stone minerality and nuance.
