2017 Sauvignon Blanc "Sunninghill"

From a single acre block located at 800 feet of elevation in a small, hidden valley encircled by lovely woodlands.  Winemaker Diana Seysses crushed the fruit by foot before pressing, then barrel fermented with wild native yeasts in stainless steel and used oak barrels.  The wine was aged in barrel sur lies until bottling in April of 2018. 100% Sauvignon Blanc; 117 cases made; closed with Saranex-lined screw caps.

Winemaker Notes
A classic Sauvignon Blanc made exactly the way our family prefers -- dry, with pure, bright fruit, subtle floral aromatics, and a hint of wet stone minerality -- consistent with previous vintages, the '17 shows off aromas of citrus, sesame and elderflowers. On the palate, it is crisp with a light phenolic backbone added to the minerality. It is long and nuanced with flavors ranging from white peach to bitter almond.
