Tasting Notes

2020 Sauvignon Blanc

Our classic styled Non-Vintage Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in stainless steel, french oak as well as concrete vessels of which helps amplify the mineralistic undertones of this wine.

This very tropical version of our West Coast style is sourced from Lake County, located just North of the famed Napa Valley, in Northern California. It is a big, bold and luscious version showcasing tropical fruit, citrus notes, and a creaminess with a huge mouthfeel.

The wine's fermentation in stainless steel offered us a clean and crisp wine. The acidity is beautifully encompassed by ripe tropical fruit and leaves your palate craving the next sip. Layered, and very approachable.

Good to Know

  • Centuries ago, in some sunny, romantic vineyard in France, Sauvignon Blanc vines met up with Cabernet Franc. The two crossed and it was…well…magic: they created Cabernet Sauvignon.
  • Fumé Blanc is a phrase and style of wine born in California in the 1960s and popularized by Robert Mondavi. Fumé Blanc is Sauvignon Blanc aged in oak, giving it smoky notes (fumé means smoke).
  • Sauvignon Blanc is the world's 8th most planted wine grape. Why does this type of wine smell so much like passion fruit or mango?
  • Why does this type of wine smell so much like passion fruit or mango? During fermentation, thiols are created. These natural, volatile sulphur-compounds are responsible for all the fruity aromas.
