Bright aromas and vibrant flavors with delicate floral notes offering an elegant palate. Bright acidity balanced by additional texture and complexity coupled by a clean minerality that lingers on the smooth finish.

Winemaker Notes
The 2016 Samantha’s Sauvignon Blanc boasts bright aromas of citrus zest, white peach, peach blossom and honeysuckle. Vibrant flavors of lemon drop, grapefruit, and peach mingle with delicate floral notes that mimic the aromas and offer an elegant palate. The bright acidity is balanced by additional texture and complexity coupled by a clean minerality that lingers on the smooth finish. Samantha’s Sauvignon Blanc was barrel fermented in our wine caves using 100% native yeast. The wine was then aged eight months sur lie for additional texture and complexity in 30% French oak (10% new, 20% seasoned), 40% stainless steel, and 30% cement egg. Our Sauvignon Blanc was then bottled unfiltered in April 2017.

Production Notes
The 2016 growing season brought fruit of exceptional quality and concentration. We had sufficient rainfall in the winter to help alleviate dryer than average conditions in recent years. Temperatures were moderate with some minor heat spikes in June and July; however, a cooling off period in August led to ideal conditions at harvest. The wines from this vintage have great uniformity, concentration and outstanding balance.
