The California Sauvignon Blanc is 100% whole-cluster pressed to minimize astringency from the skins. Once settled, a portion of the juice was placed in small neutral French oak barrels, while the majority was moved to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. This combination allows the wine to develop a balanced level of crispness. The wine in barrels is sur lie aged and stirred consistently. The final blend is a combination of lots that provides a perfect balance of richness, bouquet and mouth feel.
