Stone fruit notes mixed with light citrus, a touch of cut grass, and grapefruit. The flavors are bright and refreshing, some nectarine, white peach and lime. The acidity is soft and slightly tingly. Great for summer sipping or paired with seafood.

2021 was a very interesting vintage. We started off the spring nice and smooth. Temperatures slowly warmed and the grapes were developing nicely. In late June we had a heat spike that impacted the rest of the vintage. Triple digit temperatures for over 45 days ended up slowing berry development resulting in a smaller crop load. The flavors from this vintage are intense. The wines are going to drink great in their youth, loaded with fruity flavors. The tannin and acidity in the grapes are going to help them age gracefully as well.
Stainless steel all the way with this varietal. I want to keep the wine fruit forward. These first few vintages have shown bright fruit characteristics with only a touch of grass. The finish has some great grapefruit and citrus qualities.
We planted our first Sauvignon Blanc in 2016 and harvested in 2019. It is a varietal I have always enjoyed drinking, so when Mike planted some I said we had to make a little. We machine harvest and ferment at a cool temperature to extend primary fermentation. The wine ages for six months prior to filtration and bottling. Made drink now or over the next 5 years.
