Terroir:

Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Blue Ridge, Virginia. The Sauvignon Blanc vineyard was planted in 2006 on mid-slope Rabun clays.

Winemaking Notes:

Sauvignon Blanc grapes were hand-harvested, hand-sorted, de-stemmed, and the whole berries were 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 was extracted and the excess pressed out of the skins. After cold settling, the juice was 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.

Tasting Notes:

This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc reveals aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, and lemongrass. This wine has an exciting palate with a refreshingly crisp and clean acidity.
