2013 Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma Coast
Hummingbird Hill Vineyard
This complex, rich Sauvignon Blanc showcases powerful aromas of key lime, lemon and peach, followed by a lively tropical and citrus palate of lemon, mango and papaya. Pure, graceful and fresh, it’s perfect for tapas style dining or savory snacks like olives and hard cheese.
The long cool growing season of 2013 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. We could not ask for better fruit!
The hand picked 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 2.5 to 4 tons/acre. The wine is composed of two small batches of carefully selected Clone 1 and Sauvignon Musqué.
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.
