100% Sauvignon Blanc

95% stainless steel, 5% neutral French oak
This Sauvignon Blanc exhibits brilliant sparkling pale yellows dispersed by glancing streaks of green. Vibrant aromas leap from the glass illustrating notes of fresh lime, citrus and grapefruit. Similar flavors follow with a green lime dominance, a rich middle and a crispness that follows through to a terrific grapefruit finish.
The 2014 harvest was the earliest in decades. The Spring growing season was moderately cool with a few heat spikes allowing grapes to develop intense flavors as they ripened.
