Production Notes
This small lot was hand-harvested, sorted, destemmed and pressed.A small portion of the juice was transferred directly into a 3rd-fill French oak barrel, and kept on full solids through fermentation.The remainder was transferred gently into stainless steel, where it was cold settled for 72 hours. It was then racked into concrete and inoculated. Following alcoholic fermentation, the concrete portion was racked into 2 stainless steel barrels and another 3rd- fill French oak barrel. Batonnage was used at this point to build texture and richness. Once we were happy with the texture, all pieces were racked and blended together.The final wine was then stabilized, filtered and bottled.
Winemaker Notes
Being such a small lot, we like to experiment a bit with our Sauvignon Blanc, and really use what mother nature gives us, to showcase something special about the vintage.This year, we wanted to play up the varietal character of the wine, while also building texture and complexity through full-solids fermentation.
Food Pairing Notes
Classic: fish & chips, creamy goat cheese, dishes with green herbs (parsley, rosemary, basil, cilantro, mint, etc.), white meat, seafood, fatty vegetarian dishes (asparagus quiche, green hummus, white bean casserole with zucchini, white lasagne, etc.). Adventurous: Japanese dishes (sushi & sashimi), seafood-based steamed and fried dim sum, smoked salmon, Greek & Mexican food.
