Prior to harvest, Winemaker Bruce McGuire is on the road scouting out and securing great lots of Sauvignon Blanc from the eastern side of the Santa Ynez Valley.

Taking advantage of a more traditional climate for this grape than our cool climate Lafond Vineyard, Bruce is mindful of the importance of carrying on the style he developed over the years from the Musque clone of Sauvignon Blanc previously grown at our vineyard.

This fresh-tasting wine has its own distinctive flavor. It is a great alternative to Chardonnay and serves equally well with moderately spicy foods, seafood and salads.

 

Winemaker's 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.
