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:

2017 was a spectacular vintage with a long, dry growing season, which led to slow-ripening grapes with exceptionally balanced acidity.

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 10°C to extract some of the aromatics found within the Sauvignon Blanc skins.  After 12 hours, the juice is extracted and the remaining juice is pressed out of the skins.  After cold soaking, the juice is fermented at low temperatures for over one month in 100% stainless steel.  After fermentation, the lees are stirred for about 3 months in tank to improve mouth feel.  After six months of aging, the result is a wine that is both fresh, as well as round.
