The fruit for this wine came from our estate Culloden and Spice Cabinet Vineyards in the acclaimed Horse Heaven Hills.
The Sauvignon Blanc was machine harvested separately in the early 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 X16, a yeast known to enhance expression in Sauv Blanc, and allowed to cold ferment to lock in freshness and bright aromas. This wine is fermented in stainless steel with no malolactic fermentation, resulting in a clean, crisp, refreshing wine.
