Santa Ynez Valley
2017 Sauvignon Blanc
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: 86% of this wine is from the Musque Clone of Sauvignon Blanc. The addition of a small amount of Riesling from the Lafond Vineyards adds to the floral aromatics of the Musque Clone. Citrus and notes of Tangerine and Lime layered with tropical Mango and Honeydew Melon.
