Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
AVA: Napa Valley
Hand-picked clusters were field-sorted into half-ton bins on August 18 & 22.
After destemming, the lots were gravity-transferred into the press. A gentle whole cluster press cycle delivered a 160 gallons per ton.
A small portion was barrel fermented in neutral French oak for added complexity.
Frequent bâtonnage or “stirring of the lees” achieved beautiful texture.
Hand-picked grapes sourced from two growing appellations; Oak Knoll and St. Helena. Fermenting the majority in stainless steel brought the fruit flavors to the forefront, but a small portion was barrel fermented in neutral French oak to create a rounder mouthfeel. Frequent bâtonnage or “stirring of the lees” achieves beautiful texture.
