2017 Sauvignon Blanc

Vacation in a glass.

$35.00   per 750ml bottle
Exciting aromas of fresh stonefruit and bright kiwi bursting from the glass, with a slight hint of fresh-cut grass. Elegant and refreshing on the palate with intense citrus flavors, accented by juicy peaches and Asian pears. Bright acidity and a refreshing finish make this wine the perfect summer sipper. A lovely wine to serve as an aperitif or as a match to Ahi Tuna, Caesar salad or fresh oysters.
- Robin Akhurst, Winemaker

Wine Profile

Vineyard Notes
The Sauvignon Blanc comes from one particular block on a small hillside overlooking the San Pablo bay. The cool climate growing site on sandy loam soils keeps the crop level low producing fruit with bright acidity, vibrant minerality and fresh fruit flavors.

Vintage Notes
The 2017 growing season started with heavy rainfall, making it one of the wettest years on record. This lead to vigorous canopy growth, and an early bud-break in mid-March. Summer began with moderate temperatures in June & July, followed by sporadic heat spikes throughout the season. The sugar levels continued to increase with the heat spikes but then fell back down as the weather cooled, making the harvest season a game of start-and stop. The grapes rapidly developed beautiful ripe flavors with balanced acidity.
