We meticulously selected the best fruit from Napa Valley and Lake County to bring out the vibrant aromas and flavors that make this varietal so appealing. These regions’ warm days and cool nights are ideal for promoting Sauvignon Blanc’s beautiful and vibrant aromatics, as well as its balanced acidity.
Drought conditions characterized the growing season of 2021. Less water to the vines produced lower yields, but incredibly high quality. Moderate temperatures throughout the growing season with minimal heat spikes contributed to an early harvest with excellent fruit expression, vibrant acidity, and lower sugars in the grapes. Our Sauvignon Blanc harvest started on August 12th and was completed by the 16th.
After harvest, the fruit was immediately de-stemmed and sent to the press. A cool fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks followed to better preserve the bright and crisp Sauvignon Blanc fruit characteristics.
