The fruit for this wine came from our estate Princeton Vineyard in the acclaimed Horse Heaven Hills.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were machine harvested early in the morning hours to allow the fruit to arrive at the winery cool. Once at the winery, the juice was gently pressed away from the grape skins. The freshly pressed juice was allowed to cold settle for 48 hours and then clean racked off the solids. Fermentation was initiated with Zymaflore X5, a yeast known to enhance expression of grapefruit, passion fruit and lychee. This wine is 100% fermented in stainless steel with no ML fermentation, resulting in a clean, crisp, fresh Sauv Blanc.
