The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc has a brilliant light straw color. The bright and silky sur lie aged wine opens with aromas of ripe stone fruit and honeydew melon. The juicy, yet elegant palate shows overtones of yellow peaches with a firm citrus backbone, then some very subtle and expanding hints of clove and vanilla. The finish is refreshing and lingering.
50% whole cluster pressed, barrel fermented and aged sur lie for 8 months in once used barrels. 50% soaked on skins for 8 hours before pressing and cold fermenting in stainless steel then aged sur lie for 7 months in barrels.
