Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

This 2021 Sauvignon Blanc was harvested from grapes at optimal ripeness. Aromas of lemon, passion and stone fruit are vibrant on the nose. 

Palate: 

The palate begins with bright, crisp acidity, that wraps around crisp apple, kiwi, and honeydew melon notes. A refreshing balance of fruit lingers on the finish with a hint of freshly squeezed tangerine.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

2021 was a smooth and uneventful harvest season. June started out warm, followed by a cool and foggy July and August that slowed ripening and caused nice retention of acidity. Even ripening, with no extreme heat events, made for ideal growing conditions. Sparse winter rains resulted in an early budbreak, evenly developed clusters, and smaller berries packed full of flavor. Overall, the fruit was exceptional, making it another amazing year for quality.
