100% from the beautiful Fallenleaf Vineyard overlooking Glen Ellen on the eastern side of Sonoma Mountain, this enchanting Sonoma Coast Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of the traditional clone 1 and the exotic Sauvignon Musqué. With more Musqué this vintage than years past, the tropical and floral notes are on full display. We also blended back 3% of our 2015 vintage that we barrel-aged for 16 months to add even more layering and texture to this gorgeous 2016.
95% tank-fermented, 5% barrel-fermented, aged for six months prior to bottling.
Beautifully pale hay in hue, vibrant aromas of dark pink grapefruit, cantaloupe, tropical flowers, lemongrass and lime zest get the salivary glands fired up right away. What follows is a celebration of lively lime, fresh passionfruit, white peach and nectarines in the glass that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Full of bracing acidity, yet balanced with enough texture to make this a wonderful sipper on a hot day and an excellent partner at the table with food. If you love SB, you’ll love this wine. And if SB is not your usually your go-to white, we think you really need to try ours!
