WINERY NOTES:

Our 2021 Sauvignon Blanc opens with aromas of fresh sweet citrus, grapefruit, andmelon before revealing complex notes of green pear, freshly cut hay, and stonyminerality. Light-bodied and elegant on the palate, a beautiful through line of bright,citrusy acidity defines the wine with vibrant flavors of ripe melon, grapefruit, and citruszest before the smooth, refreshing finish.

VINEYARDS & VINTAGE:

We source our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc from grapes grown in top vineyardsthroughout Napa Valley, including our own estate ranches in Carneros, SuscolSprings, Rutherford, and Calistoga. The cooler, southern part of the valley gives ussauvignon blanc with bright citrus characters, flinty minerality, and balanced acidity,while the warmer northern region brings out tropical notes in the final wine.

The 2021 vintage was low-yielding yet incredibly high-quality in Napa Valley. A drywinter followed by a warm spring and summer led to an early harvest notable for itsexceptional quality. The grapes ripened to perfection, leading to effortlessly complex,bright wines.

WINEMAKING:

We harvest our grapes in separate blocks based on ripening and the perfect sugaracidity ratio of grapes in each vineyard. Picked 100% at night to preserve freshnessand varietal purity, our Sauvignon Blanc grapes are pressed cold and whole-cluster inan anaerobic environment to retain the utmost freshness and varietal purity in thefinished wines. This process helps maintain the vivacious aromas, flavors, and zestyacidity of Sauvignon Blanc. Then, the lots are fermented in steel tanks (96%) and asmall portion in concrete eggs (4%) to soften its acidity. After fermentation, the wine isaged briefly in neutral French oak and concrete eggs to maximize its complexitybefore bottling.
