Winemaking Process

We craft our Sauvignon Blanc wine with a key philosophy in mind; Sauvignon Blanc should not only present the classic freshness true to the varietal, but should also provide an ample and textured mouthfeel. This wine is fermented in neutral oak barrels to gain the benefit of small amounts of air throughout the aging process without adding the impact of oak flavor.

The juice was fermented with indigenous yeasts to offer the inherent complexity provided by this natural process, and the wine was allowed to age on the lees with light batônnage to build the palate.
