  • This wine displays a delicate structure with aromas of citrus, honeydew melon and a hint of herbaceous. The delicate palate of citrus tangerine and grapefruit show a bright acidity that gracefully dances across the tongue. The sensation of freshness in flavor and balance leads to a long, succulent finish.

    Production Notes
    The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc is a fun opportunity for us this summer. We have grown and produced some great dry Sauvignon Blancs in our history, we have also used this varietal as a blender in our infrequent botrytised Chateau M bottlings. We are not currently growing Sauvignon Blanc, but had an opportunity in 2012 to make a small amount with some grapes grown by a family friend. This fruit was harvested in mid-September and was whole cluster pressed, then fermented in small stainless drums. We did not use any new oak with this wine, and we did not do malolactic fermentation. I was looking for a ripe expression of the varietal that still maintained balance on the palate. Along the lines of the rose, what we crafted was a nicely balanced summertime wine.
