Tasting Notes

Our 2014 Sauvignon Blanc immediately entices you with aromas of mango, passion fruit, gooseberries, lemon grass, and mineral notes. The tropical elements satiate the palate, alluding to ripe, fleshy guava and papaya mingling with juicy melon. Rich and luxurious, the developed mouthfeel of this wine introduces itself with a chalky accent and leaves you with lingering, mouthwatering acidity.

The Year

The summer of 2014 marked the warmest summer on record in the Walla Walla Valley. Spring was cool and dry, with bud break occurring right on time in mid-April. Once it started warming up, it didn’t stop. It was actually so warm during the month of July that the vineyard shut down and pushed our picking date by 2 weeks, putting us back in line with our average harvest date in mid-September. Despite the amount of heat units we received, meticulous work in the vineyard and precise picking dates enabled us to remain consistent with our elegant and balanced style.

Awards & Accolades

“The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc from Pepper Bridge Winery is dry and racy, with notes of honeysuckle, mint and green herbs. Brought up in a mix of neutral French oak, stainless steel and concrete eggs, it will be terrific meal starter over the coming years.”
-Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate
