Winemaker Notes
"The 2016 Rutherford Estate Sauvignon Blanc is a small fermentation that showcases the best of our aromatic Musque clone fruit. The initial lemon-lime citrus and melon rind aromas evolve on the palate to notes of pink grapefruit, geranium, and white currants. Stainless steel barrel femented and aged on the lees, this elegant white has a smooth silky texture on entry with a crisp clean lingering acid finish." - Justin Carr
Vineyard Notes
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.
