Sauvignon Blanc - 2012
2012 was a perfect example of why the Central Coast is ideal for growing the best quality grapes. Moderate temperatures during summer along with warm, dry, sunny conditions throughout harvest provide us with excellent fruit year after year.

For our Monterey Sauvignon Blanc the grapes are sourced principally from the celebrated Griva vineyard, along with grapes from the neighboring San Saba vineyard. They are both in the Arroyo Seco appellation with its perfect combination of sandy, well-drained soils and warm, breezy climate. Both vineyards are planted with the renowned Musqué clone which provides the purest expression of Sauvignon Blanc aromas and flavors.

All our grapes are hand-picked during many successive pickings at various ripeness levels in order to have a broad palette of flavors and acidity levels from which to select our final blend. The juice is cold fermented in stainless steel then aged for several months in large, neutral French oak tanks to encourage integration of flavors.

The vibrant aromas exhibit notes of ripe peach, tropical fruits and grapefruit along with hints of fresh grass. On the palate, the flavors are rich, crisp and intense, showing complex essences of lime, grapefruit and gooseberry, accented by mineral notes and a refreshing acidity.

Fermentation: 100% stainless steel tanks at cold temperature. We use 3 specially selected yeasts, each one adding its particular nuance and style to the overall blend.
