Winemaking Notes

Our 2022 vintage shows a tropical style, opening with passionfruit, guava and honeydew melon with a generous streak of lime peel, adding to the complexity. The oak aging adds depth to the wine while still feeling light with vibrant acidity. Enjoy this wine with flavorful and tangy cheese such as Manchego or cheddar, pickled beet salad, oysters on the half shell or anything else you'd like. 

Vineyard Notes
Deep in the heart of the Russian River Valley, we have a five acre gem of Sauvignon Blanc. As a tribute to Davis Bynum’s second love, we named the five acres Virginia’s block. The vines are planted in east-west rows in shallow gravelly Huichica loam. The vines are cane pruned and trained to open up the canopy to allow the sunlight to touch the fruit. These fruit clusters turn golden through harvest, as the flavors become fully mature.
Production Notes
The 2022 vintage turned out to be dry and mild. Rain from the previous autumn was light and the new year was warm and dry with highs up to 70 degrees in early spring. After light sprinkles in late spring and early summer, the temperature turned predictably hot in June but, overall, the season was mild with most summer days peaking around 85-90 degrees. An early harvest came as no surprise with the seasonable weather, and we picked the two vineyards just three days apart in early September.
