Item Description

Fruit for this bottling was sourced from three different vineyards to the eastern edge in the Santa Ynez Valley in the AVA Happy Canyon. The fruit was picked on the early side, whole cluster pressed into tank and then fermented in both stainless steel and in neutral barrels. After fermentation, all lots were put in neutral barrels through the winter before being racked a few months prior to bottling. The finished wine is mineral-driven, focused, and racy style that speaks more to Sancerre than to the riper, richer styles typical of California and other warmer climates." - Winery Notes

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

Classic with a Twist!

"This stunning Sauvignon Blanc from the Ynez Valley of California is quite the steal! On the nose there are floral notes as well of hints of citrus, lychee, and grapefruit. As one would expect, you also have grapefruit on the palate as well as a surprising slight punch of salinity. Fresh pear comes through as well and a delicate acidity with a touch of minerality. This focused wine would be a great addition to your meal - such as a roasted turkey on Thanksgiving."
