Terroir:

This wine is made from 100% estate-grown fruit. Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA). The Sauvignon Blanc vineyard was planted in 2006 on mid-slope Rabun clays.

Vintage Notes:

After frost in April led to a reduced yield, a mild summer and a warm, dry August and September resulted in wines with a great depth of flavor and structure for aging.

Winemaker's Notes:

Sauvignon Blanc grapes are hand-harvested, hand-sorted, de-stemmed, and the whole berries are allowed to macerate in tank over night at 50°F (10°C) to extract some of the aromatics found within the Sauvignon Blanc skins. After 12 hours, the juice is extracted and the excess is pressed out of the skins. After cold settling, the juice is fermented at low temperatures for over one month in 100% stainless steel tanks. The lees are stirred for about 3 months in tank after fermentation to improve mouthfeel. After six months of aging, the result is a wine that is both fresh and round.
