Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Our 2018 Curated Collection North Coast Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with bright citrus and chalk aromas from the glass.

Palate: 

 A full, tangy mouthfeel on the palate leads to flavors of gooseberry, lime, fresh orange blossom and a hint of minerality with a long, racy finish. This wine shines with bright acidity that makes this a thirst-quenching wine on a hot summer day.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

2018 was a near picture-perfect growing season that began in late February followed by a mild Spring yielding uniform grape clusters. Temperatures remained moderate to cool throughout the season with 2018 being considered one of the coolest vintages of the past decade. The cooler temperatures allowed for a longer hangtime resulting in an even and temperate harvest.
