2012 Cosa Obra Sauvignon Blanc

COSA OBRA
2012 Sauvignon Blanc
Hummingbird Hill, Sonoma Coast

Cosa Obra celebrates the artistic nature of winemaking by focusing on small vineyard parcels and blending the resulting lots to create wines of seduction, power and grace. Owner Gregory Hayes, and Consulting Winemaker Kent Humphrey have come together to form a team with over two decades of experience in the wine industry and a passion for unique and outstanding wines.

Vintage:
The long cool growing season of 2012 allowed great acid retention in the fruit and extended time for flavor development without the higher sugar levels associated with warmer growing conditions. The warm weather in October was timed perfectly to bring the fruit to the needed ripeness levels. The fruit that came in was fantastic!

Vineyard:
Fruit was sourced from Hummingbird Hill Vineyard in the cool, windy hills of the Sonoma Coast, in which yields are maintained at low levels, ranging from 1.5 to 3 tons/acre. The wine is composed of two small batches of carefully selected Clone 1 and Sauvignon Musqué.

Winemaking:
Grapes were picked in the early morning hours, and went immediately to press and chilled to preserve freshness.  The grape juice was immediately inoculated with yeast and nutrients to finish the primary fermentation in tank and hand selected neutral French Oak barrels at carefully controlled temperatures.

About The Winery...

The name Cosa Obra is comprised of two words, Cosa meaning "thing" and Obra "a hand-crafted body of work".  This is our thing, this is what we do, this is our hand-crafted body of work.

With over two decades of experience in the wine industry and a passion for unique wines, owner Gregory Hayes, and Consulting Winemaker Kent Humphrey have come together to create wines of seduction, power and grace.  Our winemaking goal is simple; make a small amount of exceptional wine from carefully selected artisan vineyards from unique terroir, and offer them to those whom appreciate delicious wines.

Through these efforts Cosa Obra currently produces two wines, a Proprietary Red Blend and a Sauvignon Blanc crafted from grapes purchased from small growers in the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley and Bennett Valley.  The limited production wines are released when they reach a level of enjoyment to share and enjoy with friends & family.
