The 2014 vintage saw an abundance of sunshine and warmth on the North Coast of California,creating a perfectly balanced Sauvignon Blanc. We selected a majority of the grapes for this wine from our MacMurray Ranch Vineyard in the Russian River Valley, which contributed to this Sauvignon Blanc’s bright acidity and classic citrus aromas, including grapefruit and lemon zest. We also selected grapes from Solano County, where the warm days and cool nights resulted in ripe tropical characteristics.
After the grapes were pressed, the juice was racked to preserve the delicate aromas and flavors characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc. In response to a very warm growing season, fermentation was cooler on average this year to preserve the bright aromatics of the grape variety. The cooler temperatures slowed the process, allowing more time on lees and imparting more textual richness and layered fruit complexity. A touch of Semillon was added to the blend for its lively acidity and citrus zest.
