We notice tropical citrus and passionfruit aromas that immediately say "Sauvignon Blanc" with a hint of vanilla aromas from the kiss of oak used. Lemony flavors and strong acid backbone with just a bit of creaminess from the small amount of oak aging. A perfecting wine pairing for first courses, lighter main courses, or enjoying on its own as an aperitif wine.
100% Sauvignon Blanc. We picked the shady blocks of the vineyard for this wine, at a low brix (sugar level), for brighter aromatics in the resulting wine. We destemmed and pressed the grapes to tank for fermentation. We included a small amount of more ripe grapes from our Latrobe vineyard to add a touch of additional lushness.
Fish tacos with mango salsa. Marinated and grilled shrimp. Grilled vegetables. Falafel is an excellent vegetarian main dish pairing. Mediterranean salad with grilled chicken. Chicken with lemon-caper sauce.
We aged 10% of this wine in heavy toast French oak for a few months before bottling to add a touch of oak character.
