"Lively acidity wraps itself around fresh notions of grapefruit, gooseberry and peach in this fuller, richer style of white. French oak played a part in both fermentation and aging, adding a luxurious undercurrent of texture and complexity."
– VB, Wine Enthusiast - September 2017

 

 

 

Hummingbird Hill Vineyard
2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes
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 hard cheese.

Vintage
The long cool growing season of 2013 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. We could not ask for better fruit!

Vineyard
The hand picked 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 2.5 to 4 tons/acre. The wine is composed of two small batches of carefully selected Clone 1 and Sauvignon Musqué.

Winemaking
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.
