The Russian River Valley is blessed by a myriad of microclimates – however, the unifying characteristics are foggy mornings and evenings that cool off hot summer days in the vineyard. The result is an extended growing season that allows grapes to fully ripen while keeping their fresh, vibrant acidity. This climate is a perfect showcase for Sauvignon Blanc – the grape is at once both plush and tropical as well as pleasantly invigorating – the best of both worlds.
Pale straw gold in color, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is bracingly fresh on the nose. Notes of gooseberry, kefir lime, sweet ginger, and white pepper give way to more tropical fruits like pineapple and lychee with time in the glass. The result of an extended drought, this vintage shows great concentration and precision on the palate with a laser-like focus on bright citrus, candied orange, and green papaya. Juicy and penetrating, the finish lingers and cleanses with final notes of key lime and stony minerality.
