Winery Notes:

This wine is a blend of three vineyard sites including our rare and special clone of Old Vine Sauvignon Blanc.  With aromas of passion fruit, melon, and citrus tones this is a light and sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc.

Fifty nine percent is from the original Sauvignon Blanc vineyard planted in 1959, twenty five percent is from our newest planting (2001) of a very special and rare clone, and sixteen percent is from our 31-year-old hillside vineyard. 

This wine is tank fermented at a cool temperature to preserve its intense varietal character and firm acidity. With aromas of passion fruit, melon, and citrus tones this is a light and sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc.

Ratings & Reviews:

95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Pale straw in color, the 2022 Sauvignon Blanc Estate is flinty with wet rock, almost petrol, fresh chive, fresh peach, and delicate white grapefruit as well as a hint of saline. It’s a more Sancerre-inspired style, with fantastic restraint. On the palate, it offers ripe fruit as well as elegant and driving acidity, but it has a beautiful texture, with ripe peach, fresh herbs, and saline. This is a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc to enjoy over the next 5-7 years or more." (Jul 2023)
