2016 Sauvignon Blanc

2016 Sauvignon Blanc

Enjoy aromas of melon, guava, and mango

2016 was a fairly interesting vintage - very dry in the spring and early summer and so hot and humid in July and August. The fall rain presented a challenge in the vineyard but did not materially affect the harvest. Fruit was flavorful, balanced and ripe despite coming into the cellar with slightly lower brix levels than previous vintages.

Aromas of ripe melon, guava and mango. Tropical flavors of pineapple, pink grapefruit and fresh cut grass. A delightful combination a power and finesse with just the perfect amount of North Fork acidity
