The 2018 Mendocino County Sauvignon Blanc was grown on an old vine vineyard planted in the late 1970s in Potter Valley which is at the Northern end of the Ukiah region at about 1000 foot elevation. While very hot throughout the growing season the nighttime temperature drop by 40-45 degrees which makes for small berries on tight cluster which lead to deeply concentrated flavors while retaining brighter acidity than most vineyard sites in California, especially in whites.
Our wine was naturally fermented in stainless steel then aged for 6 months in once used French oak barrels. Full bodied and richly textured, this wine has aromas of marigold flower, apple and banana. The palate shows nice concentration of flavor and finishes long and dry.
