2021 Fionna Vineyard - Sauvignon Blanc
Los Carneros, Napa Valley
Mellow aromas of acacia and peach juice. White rose, lemon-lime, and vanilla bean, with a soft and lingering finish reminiscent of apricots and white plums.
We gently whole-cluster press the juice to our concrete egg, and ferment the wine on native yeast for five weeks. The wine then ages seven months in French oak barrels (18% new) and stainless steel. We perform a light pad filtration (solely for clarity) and cold stablization prior to bottling by hand at the winery, with minimal sulfur.
Delightful now, the wine will gain complexity over the next year and reach its apogee from 2023-2024.
112 cases produced. Bottled by hand at the winery.
