Varietals: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Vineyard: 100% Grishaw
Flavor Notes: Our Sauvignon Blanc is done in the North East Italian style (inspired by the Friuli region), which lends itself to clean, not perfumy, flavor profile. There is a focus toward structure rather than obvious fruit. Think melon, cantaloupe, and light green apple.
Suggested Pairings: Try the Sauvignon Blanc with grilled vegetables like asparagus. This is also a wonderful wine to enjoy on its own, or before a meal with friends!
Processing: ½ of the Sauvignon Blanc was done in stainless and ½ in oak stücks for 4 months with lees contact (to help enhance mid-palate flavors/texture/body). The stainless juice came from an earlier harvest, presenting more crisp flavor and aromatics. The stück juice came from a later harvest with more weight and citrus. All was blended together before bottling.
Cellaring Recommendations: Drink now! These were young vines and not intended for aging.
