Opens with aromas of passion fruit, grapefruit, and citrus. Fresh and crisp flavors of melon, fig and tropical fruit dance on the palate. The bright palate and body are followed by a long mineral finish.

Winemaker Notes
The fruit for our 2015 Barrel Select Sauvignon Blanc came from the upper Mesa portion of our estate where vines offer lower yields, resulting in more concentrated flavors. This wine opens with aromas of passion fruit, grapefruit, and citrus. Fresh and crisp flavors of melon, fig and tropical fruit dance on the palate. The bright palate and body of this Sauvignon Blanc is followed by a long mineral finish.

Production Notes
The 2015 vintage had the warmest temperatures and least amount of rainfall in the winery’s history. Despite the lack of rainfall, the timing of the growth of the vines was perfect. Bud break began in the last week of February, and there were very few incidents of frost which led to a slightly earlier bloom. June was sunny and warm followed by warmer than average July and August months. The grapes were harvested from August 27 - September 3, 2015.
