2019 Sauvignon Blanc, Columbia Valley
This fourth vintage of our Sauvignon Blanc maintains our dedication to old vine and hillside sites. For this wine, we carefully select an assortment of small, hand farmed vineyards to source complementary components of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscat. Most of the juice is fermented in stainless steel, while 10% is fermented in large capacity Fraîcheur and Craie barrels that were specifically designed for white Bordeaux varieties. The barrel fermentation lends richness and density to the wine, while the stainless portion emphasizes fruit and vibrancy.
Our Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and refreshing, with bright fruit and sweet honeysuckle, yet has an underlying richness, resulting in a wine of medium body and substance. With hints of hints of pineapple, clementine, honeysuckle and white pepper, it is a delightful aperitif and will pair well with seafood, salads, and lighter meat dishes.
