Winery Notes: “The wine is a blend of grapes from three top vineyard sources: Grassini (60%), Vogelzang (34%) and Grimm’s Bluff (6%), with a total of 9 separate and distinct blocks represented in the final blend. The site diversity provides complexity to the wine which was fermented and aged for 7 months in oak barrels (73%) and stainless steel (27%). The wine admirably succeeds the 90-92 point wines from past several vintages, with perhaps a little extra energy and freshness, but no less flavor.”
Robert Parker 92 Points: “Dragonette’s 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Happy Canyon is gorgeous. Bright, floral and energetic, the Sauvignon Blanc Happy Canyon is endowed with striking aromatic intensity and depth, both of which make it incredibly appealing, even in the very early going. This is an especially brisk style for Dragonette, but that is mostly the vintage speaking. Vineyard sites are Grassini and Vogelzang, with some Grimm’s Bluff.“
Jeb Dunnuck 92 Points: “ “There are four Sauvignon Blanc releases, three single vineyards and one appellation release. Starting with the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Happy Canyon, it comes 60% from the Grassini Family Vineyard, 34% from the Vogelzang Vineyard, and the rest from the Grimm’s Bluff Vineyard, all located in the Happy Canyon region of Santa Barbara County. Light gold-colored, it offers a vibrant bouquet of lemon curd, green citrus, white flowers, and honeysuckle. Clean, beautifully balanced, medium-bodied, and lengthy, it’s a smoking value that can be drunk today or cellared for a decade if you’re so inclined.“”
