The grapes are from McGinley Vineyard on the warm edges of the Santa Ynez River between Solvang and Santa Ynez near Los Olivos. An area whose climate we think ideal for Sauvignon Blanc.
Winemaker, Bruce McGuire, selected a small block within the McGinley Vineyard. A block he recognized as having potential and one he could go back to year after year. Familiarity is important in order to extract the qualities that each vineyard offers.
Using a cool slow fermentation in refrigerated stainless steel tanks he kept the aromatic components of the Musque clone while developing the flinty characteristics and flavor of the grape.
Winemaker's Comments: At McGinley Vineyard we have one block of Musque clone Sauvignon Blanc. This aromatic wine is 100% Musque and is 100% fermented in stainless steel with no malolactic fermentation to maximize freshness.
