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 10°C to extract some of the aromatics found within the Sauvignon Blanc skins.  After 12 hours the juice was extracted and the remaining juice pressed out of the skins.  After cold soaking, the juice was 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.

Tasting Notes:

This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, green bell pepper and lemongrass. This wine has an exciting palate with a refreshing crisp and clean acidity.
