Vineyard

Our 2017 Sauvignon Blanc captures the exotic, vibrant and complex fruit character of our estate-grown grapes. The vineyards are ideally situated to take advantage of soil changes, different aspects, and exposures to sun and wind. Sauvignon Gris and Sauvignon Musqué add layers of flavor and interest to the blend. In the winery, we preserve the distinctive aromatics of the grapes by minimizing exposure to air and fermenting with native and cultured yeast in a combination of stainless steel and neutral French oak. Aging on the lees with regular stirring bring all the elements together, giving us a complete and harmonious wine.
