2013 Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Retail Price: $40.00

Very aromatic in the glass, the wine suggests honeysuckle, white peach, pear and tropical fruits. The entry is full, rich and textured, with abundant fruit balanced by bright acidity. It retains its weight, volume and viscosity through the mid-palate to a fresh and persistent finish. Serve with fresh goats cheese, shellfish or white meats.

2013 Vintage

The winter of 2012 to 2013 was dry and warm. Most of the seasonal rainfall came in December 2012. Warm winter temperatures, with several days in the 70s, brought forth bud break two weeks earlier than normal. Spring and summertime temperatures were pleasant and warm with a few heat waves that were not damaging to the clusters. The growing season was ideal, and the fruit was of the highest quality at harvest. Sauvignon Blanc was picked between August 30th and September 4th.
