Winemaking Notes
Bursting with generous ripe fruit and orange blossom aromatics, our fume-style Alexander Valley Sauvignon blanc offers juicy flavors of kiwifiuit, yellow peach, and passionfruit wrapped in bright refreshing acidity. A full and soft midpalate and notes of vanilla panna cotta are the outcome of aging sur lie in 400 liter French oak barrels. The wine finishes with subtle sweet almond and mineral complexity. Try this with smoked salmon, chicken picatta, or a lemon mascarpone pasta dish.
Production Notes
The 2023 vintage is not one we will soon forget. A cool and wet winter led to a budbreak 2-3 weeks later than average. Daytime temperatures throughout the growing season continued to be unusually cool, with averages in the low 70s and the warmest days just reaching into the mid 80s. This led to an exceptionally late harvest - over a full month later than 2022 on average, offering the grapes an extended hang time to develop extraordinarily complexity and concentration. The evening coastal breezes reaching inwards to the Alexander Valley AVA preserved fresh acidity and created beautiful balance with the season's generous ripe fruit flavors.
