Growing season notes:
This growing season was relatively even and just slightly cooler with an early harvest. The well-drained soils at the Lamonica vineyard in Southern Napa, from where we source our Sauvignon Blanc, helped the vines produce a crop that was very concentrated in flavor.
The 2016 Seated Cloud was again, the whole cluster pressed and barreled down to 100% neutral French oak for both fermentation and aging. We have continued with the process of batonnage which allows the wine to have a little more weight than your typical Sauvignon Blanc and hence, is more age-worthy.
This wine is crisp and bright, with great complexity. Crushed stone, a subtle minerality, lychee, lemongrass, and hay. A touch of creaminess from batonnage and a well-balanced finish.
