2020 Sauvignon Blanc
This wine was produced from our Randle Hill Vineyard and is always made in the same way including 100% barrel fermentation to give it a lovely weight and texture on the tongue. However, older French oak barrels are used so that no woody or oaky flavor is imparted yet the wine benefits from richer mouth-feel.
Our S.B. vines are descendants of original cuttings in the 1880's of Sauvignon Blanc vines from the iconic Bordeaux vineyard Chateau d'Yquem.
Harvested on several days between September 14 and the 22nd, the fruit went into the winery with a perfect balance of sugars and crisp acidity. As with all of our white wines, the grapes were crushed directly to the press, and cold settled for 24 hours before being transferred to 100% seasoned small French oak barrels for fermentation and sur-lie aging. Our 2020 vintage is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from our Randle Hill Organic Vineyard.
