SKU: 18_E_S_Blanc

We get raves for our Sauvignon Blanc from this 2500' elevation vineyard for its balance of minerality and soft flavors of melon and papaya.

It is hard to drink just one glass of this great apéritif wine.

Our Sauvignon Blanc is made from estate grapes grown at the Monarch Mine Vineyard, overlooking theAmerica n River Canyon at 2,500 feet, near the town of Foresthill in Placer County. We planted a four acre vineyard at this severe rocky site to two different selections of Sauvignon Blanc: Clone One (the original Bordeaux selection in California from Chateau Yquem) and the Musqué clone.

We cold ferment these two varieties together in a stainless steel tank at 55°F and then age them for nine months in neutral French oak barrels on lees before bottling it in late March the year following harvest. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation and therefore retains its delicious crispness.
