2017 Sauvignon Blanc
"This Sauvignon Blanc is in a beautiful place right now. Still showcasing bright minerality and thirst-quenching citrus and stone fruit. Yet, just a few years of age in the bottle has developed its structure and palate weight with stunning complexity. This wine was built for true lovers of Bordeaux-style Sauvignon Blanc with a touch of bottle age." - Cristie Kerr
Helen made the wine completely in barrel, using well seasoned French barriques (just 10% new oak) to let the malolactic fermentation naturally occur and slowly transform the must. The result is a beautifully seductive white with a wonderful textural richness, which offers a full spectrum of flavors and balance. Due to the meticulous grape selection, our 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is limited to just 386 cases.
We ferment our Sauvignon blend in French oak barrels for eight months, which harmonizes the grapes' characters and gives a rounded, supple weight to the wine. Seamlessly integrating freshness, body, a hint of tannins, and a tantalizing mineral finish, this wine is all about balance. Pair it with veal or pork in creamy mustard sauces, garlic, and herb-roast chicken, or a Lebanese falafel tabbouleh to really reveal the wine's layered complexity.
