About this wine
Our Sauvignon Blanc is grown on two separate sites at Bell Mountain and different clones. The more northerly growing site has east to west sun exposure for extreme ripening of the fruit. The southern site is one of our coolest spots at Bell Mountain which creates layers of minerality, freshness, lively citrus characters, and the palate cleansing acidity we look for in Sauvignon Blanc. The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in stainless steel and comprises from fruit picked at various ripeness levels to help achieve balance in acidity, minerality and developed fruit flavors. The result is an intricate rich wine with pronounced aromas of lemon curd, honeysuckle, white flowers, and grapefruit. A full bodied and structured palate offering flavors of lemon zest, crisp granny smith apple and guava that are rounded out with a soft and palate cleansing acidity. This is a complex and textured sauvignon blanc destined to be served alongside fresh seafood and good company.
