Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: “The richest of the three Sauvignons, the 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Vogelzang Vineyard has gorgeous melon, honeyed white flowers, orange blossom, and chalky, mineral nuances to go with a medium to full-bodied, vibrant, beautifully balanced style on the palate. It’s clearly the most concentrated and opulent, with a singular style that will benefit from just a few years in the cellar. As with the other releases here, it will evolve for at least a decade if you’re so inclined.
Winery Notes: “The resulting wine shows classic Vogelzang character of powerful stone fruit, mango, and pineapple aromas, with some floral and herb notes, followed by dramatic fruit flavors of great concentration and texture leading to a whiplash of citrus-dominated acidity and effusive minerality, which gives a tremendous finish.”
Vineyard – The Vogelzang vineyard is situated on a gently sloping bed of well-drained, gravelly loam soil with Serpentinite. The vineyard is well established and has been carefully pruned, leafed, and deficit-irrigated to focus the plant’s energy on fruit development. We purchase these grapes from several distinct blocks in the vineyard and farm them on a per-acre basis, so that we can control all farming practices, including pruning, canopy management, yield control, irrigation, and differential harvesting of our blocks.
