Winery Notes:

Our distinctive, barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc leads with an intoxicating medley of citrus and tropical fruit aromas, highlighting notes of orange blossom, lemon meringue, panna cotta and passion fruit that carry through onto the palate. A unique mix of new and neutral oak adds subtle richness and complexity to the wine, while the use of our Chateau Haut Brion barrels allow for a zesty backbone of acidity revealing a refreshing brightness on the citrus-driven finish.

Subtle oak spices and mild herb accents are layered with crisp, tangy lemon, green apple and kiwi flavors in this lively, textural and almost tannic wine. Vivid acidity does most of the talking, lending a palate-cleansing, mouthwatering effect that's exciting.

The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is ripe and tropical, with forward, sunny aromas of mango, fresh grapefruit, and rounded floral aromas. Medium-bodied, with driving energy and good concentration in its vibrant notes of pure lime citrus, fresh apple, and delicate spice, it’s a more serious style to hold another 6-12 months and drink 2024-2034.

The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc was barrel fermented and matured for six months in 38% new French oak. Flinty tones give way to kiwi and guava, fresh green herbs, white pepper, meringue and beeswax aromas. The medium-bodied palate balances expansive flavors with focused acidity, and a roundness to its texture lengthens the finish. It's a bit crunchier and brighter than is typical for this brand but still a pleasure to drink. 500 cases were made.

A pure sauvignon blanc with aromas and flavors of sliced green apples and hints of celery salt. Flint, too. Medium body, very crisp and crunchy with lots of lime and hints of vanilla at the end. Plenty of tension here. Drink now.
