About This Wine:
Juicy, exotic and complex. This is the best way to describe this wine. It is made in the Fume style with one third each new, second use and neutral Jupilles forest oak. In 2010 we made this wine into part of the Commonwealth Collection but simply put I didn’t want to do that again because generally we are not Sauvignon Blanc producers and don’t want to get know to be so. We simply got two straight vintages that worked incredibly well for the variety given it is an earlier ripener and simply got exotic in the way I love Sauvignon Blanc. The 2012 is delicious but not in the same realm as these so is not going to be a 100% wine for what it is worth.

The wine was made just like our Single Vineyard white wines using indigenous yeast fermentations in barrel before enjoying a 10 month elevage with bi-weekly lees stirring before being bottled in August of this year.

The wine simply shoots from the glass with intense papaya, passion fruit, and pineapple character. The palate is full and intense but pulled together with a refreshing and balancing acidity leading to a long tropical fruit driven finish. Simply put…My kind of Sauvignon Blanc. While I am a bit weird and love this style of Sauvignon Blanc with a couple of years on it, most will enjoy this young with something like Crispy skinned Chesapeake Rockfish with a Mango and Habanero Salsa and a simply Greens Salad with toasted pine nuts.
