Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is a firm, well balanced wine offering aromas of white peach, grapefruit and lemongrass. Those spicy, citrusy tones compliment an attractively smooth palate. Lime, pomelo and nectarine sparkle into an intense and lasting finish.

Production Notes
Our home ranch on the westside of the High Valley AVA has been known as “High Serenity Ranch” for over one hundred years. The blocks planted to this idyllic site include Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Gewurztraminer. Each block is comprised of ancient lakebed and alluvial soils from the surrounding mountain range. The transverse valley winds create some of the coolest sites in Lake County. The lower temperatures on the valley floor allow for diurnal temperature swings of more than forty degrees, enhancing flavor development while the retaining a crisp acidity.
Winemaker Notes
We harvest our grapes early in the morning to ensure peak acidity and freshness upon arrival to the winery. After gentle pressing, we allowed the juice to cold settle overnight. The next day we racked the juice off heavy lees and fermented in small stainless-steel tanks. Sur lie aging with battonage (lees stirring) once a week in tank creates additional body, texture and viscosity in the wine. This wine was aged six months, lightly fined and filtered before bottling for maximum freshness and brilliant clarity.
