||Monterey County, CA
This Monterey County Sauvignon Blanc is
bursting with crisp, refreshing notes of citrus and passionfruit. It is
sur lie aged to bring out the fullest flavors and a richer mouthfeel,
and reveals a tropical, fruit-forward flavor profile.
The majority of these grapes
came from Southern Monterey County, from our San Lucas
Vineyard, near the Pacific Ocean. This cool climate is excellent,
providing fruit that supports a wine with a solid acid profile. We
built the wine using the standard California Sauvignon Blanc
clone, but also the Sauvignon Blanc Musque clone for phenolics
and added complexity. Additionally, we picked at three different
ripeness levels to expand aromatic range and intensity.
Pair with oysters on the half shell, spinach
salad with goat cheese and walnuts or citrus garlic shrimp.
