Bruce McGuire selects his favorite lots between four different vineyards to create the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc. Bruce looks towards the Eastern edge of the Santa Ynez Valley, and its warmer weather, to create this aromatic wine from 85% Musque clone. The time spent in neutral oaks adds texture and body to the bright crisp fruit.
Winemaker Comments: The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is 85% Musque Clone. It is aromatic with hints of zesty lime. The barrel fermented portion adds texture to the crisp, bright fruit.
Tasting Notes: The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc shines pale straw. Aromas of granny smith apple and honeysuckle jump out of the glass. Fully ripe lemon and pineapple overlap well-developed minerality. Light and crisp -- drink alongside white fish, mixed green salads, and mild vinaigrettes.
