Tasting Notes

The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is intensely bright with scents of tropical fruits, guava, peach, and pear. The wine is layered and complex with notes of white flower, and the minerality of wet stone. Mouthwatering scents lead to complimentary flavors of starfruit, peach, grapefruit, and mango. This wine’s serious side is revealed through the balance of rich full texture, bright acidity, and abundant fruit.

The Year

The 2021 growing season started with a cool, dry spring and an early bud break in April. Subsequently, a July heat dome sent temperatures soaring to previously unseen heights for the state– reaching a staggering 116°! Beyond that, above average temperatures persisted throughout the summer. Finally, the weather cooled at the end of August bringing perfect ripening conditions for an ideal, unrushed harvest season. Although the heat produced lower yields across the region, the grapes held beautiful concentration and acidity, with immense taste, mouthfeel, and color. Wines from the 2021 vintage are extremely balanced, forecasting their age-worthiness and drinkability for years to come!
