This is the most unique and distinctive Sauvignon Blanc Brassfield has ever produced. It has a style all its own with a richness and depth not found in typical California Sauvignon Blancs. Its nose is a complex mix of lime zest, Mandarin orange, melon, peppery spice, and cut grass. Pear, grapefruit, and guava provide a mouth-filling injection of ripe fruitiness. The wines pale straw color is indicative of the winemaking methods and hints of the lengthy finish that is a synergy between extracted grapes, subtle oak, and delicate minerality.

Tasting Notes
This is the most unique and distinctive Sauvignon Blanc Brassfield has ever produced. It has a style all its own with a richness and depth not found in typical California Sauvignon Blancs. Its nose is a complex mix of lime zest, Mandarin orange, melon, peppery spice, and cut grass. Pear, grapefruit, and guava provide a mouth-filling injection of ripe fruitiness. The wines pale straw color is indicative of the winemaking methods and hints of the lengthy finish that is a synergy between extracted grapes, subtle oak, and delicate minerality.
Vineyard Notes
All of the fruit for this wine is grown on the floor of High Valley at 1,800 elevation. Diurnal temperature swings of more than forty degrees are common in the valley, enabling ripeness and the retention of acidity. The grapes for this wine are a blend from three clonal selections which span two distinctive soil types. Forty-four % clone 376 and eight % clone 1 from the alluvial soils that dominate the valley floor and forty-eight % clone 27 (Sauvignon Musque) from a volcanic slope on the northern edge of the valley.
Winemaker Notes
Our 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is a sum of two distinctive components. Fruit processed using reductive winemaking techniques and stainless steel tanks keeping the fresh aromatic favors intact and fruit crafted into wine with our own proprietary method developed at the estate. This second method involves keeping the grape skins in contact with the juice for four plus days while fermentation is started. The resulting highly concentrated juice is then transferred to French oak barrels for extended aging with its lees. This component brings a mouth-filling richness and intense rind-like fruit flavors to the fine blend. Our goal is a distinctive and approachable wine that stands out from the crowd.
