2012 Sauvignon Blanc, Hummingbird Hill Vineyard

Sauvignon Blanc

91 pts. - Wine Enthusiast
What a great Sauvignon Blanc, a fine followup to the 2011. A 100% varietal wine, it's brisk and clean with acidity, along with complex flavors of Meyer lemons, limes, ripe white peaches, honey and a touch of golden mangoes. Only neutral oak was applied, which allows the fruit to star. - S.H.

89 pts. - Wine Spectator
Offering a core of pure peach flavors and a squirt of lemon juice, this is intense, with a good balance of ripeness and juiciness. Toast and spice notes echo in the background, bolstering the peach cobbler-accented finish. Drink now. 294 cases made. –MW

Tasting Notes:
Sourced from Hummingbird Hill Vineyard in the cool, windy hills of the Sonoma Coast, this complex, rich Sauvignon Blanc showcases powerful aromas of key lime, lemon and peach, followed by a lively tropical and citrus palate of lemon, mango and papaya.  Pure, graceful and fresh, it's perfect for tapas style dining or savory snacks like olives and cheese.  This versatile wine is one you will want to enjoy all year long. 

The long cool growing season of 2012 allowed great acid retention in the fruit and extended time for flavor development without the higher sugar levels associated with warmer growing conditions. The warm weather in October was timed perfectly to bring the fruit to the needed ripeness levels. The fruit that came in was fantastic!

Fruit was sourced from Hummingbird Hill Vineyard in the cool, windy hills of the Sonoma Coast, in which yields are maintained at low levels, ranging from 1.5 to 3 tons/acre. The wine is composed of two small batches of carefully selected Clone 1 and Sauvignon Musqué.

Grapes were picked in the early morning hours, and went immediately to press and chilled to preserve freshness.  The grape juice was immediately inoculated with yeast and nutrients to finish the primary fermentation in tank and hand selected neutral French Oak barrels at carefully controlled temperatures.
