Sauvignon Blanc | East Side Vineyards v.2019 SONOMA COUNTY, DRY CREEK VALLEY
In the Vineyard:
Dry Creek Valley has a great pedigree for growing and developing great fruit characteristics as well as bright acidity in Sauvignon Blanc. We sourced two vineyards for this vintage: our estate vineyards as well as Kay Wood’s. Each vineyard’s microclimate combines sun, soil, and fog to retain ripe fruit and crisp flavor. Add these components to the special care and attention from the vineyard crew and the resulting wine is a wonderful reflection of terroir—wherein the sum is greater than the parts.
Vintage & Winemaking Notes:
Quite a bit of rain in the winter and early spring slowed the growing season and the maturation of the vineyard. It set a nice pace for the vintage. Grapes were harvested one week later than normal. Perfect weather conditions during harvest season with even-handed warm days and cool nights developed more aromatics and flavors than in previous vintages.
Once the grapes are destemmed and pressed the juice goes to a stainless steel fermenting tanks to cold soak for 24/48 hours. Inoculated with selected yeast and slow fermentation at about 58F in stainless steel tanks completes the process. Keeping the temperature-controlled during fermentation maintains varietal flavors. The wine is bottled a few months after harvest without oak aging or malolactic fermentation. The style of this Sauvignon Blanc captures the freshness and showcases the luscious Dry Creek Valley fruit.
Pale yellow, brightly aromatic, and very varietally correct-true to the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The clean and fresh flavors are layered with pear, Meyer lemon, and tropical fruits. Our Sauvignon Blanc is crisp with notes of citrus, green apple, grass, and a touch of minerality. The finish is quite refreshing. Please enjoy upon release or within a year or two as no aging is required.
