2019 Sauvignon Blanc
Rutherford, Napa Valley
“Crisp, clean and elegant, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is rich with aromas of grapefruit, lime, kiwi, green melon and just a hint of fresh cut green grass. Our slow and very cold fermentations retain the natural complexities of our Rutherford fruit, while developing a balanced mouthfeel that finishes with the crisp acid of this classic dry white varietal.” - Justin Carr
2019 was a very wet winter with rain coming into spring. Keeping the vines in balance was especially important this year. Successful management of the vines along with wonderfully mild weather through summer gave us warm days and cool nights. This is a recipe for success in vineyards, the vintage gave us a great balance of sugar and acid with complete phenolic ripening.
