2016 Sauvignon Blanc
“Abounding aromas of grapefruit, lime zest, kiwi, and melon with hints of white flowers and fresh cut green grass. Slow cold fermentations retain the natural complexities of our Rutherford fruit, while developing a balanced mouthfeel that finishes with the crisp acid of a classic dry white wine that leaves you wanting more.” - Justin Carr
An early bud break, wet spring soils, and a long growing season produced a vintage with excellent quality. A wet spring started fast and rapid growth was met with average summer temperatures, which slowed development and reduced yields. The result was a moderate crop of well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest.
