This wine is made from two vineyard sites: Lolonis and Chevalier vineyards, both Certified Organic. The dry-farmed Lolonis vineyard has some of the oldest Sauvignon Blanc vines in the country, planted in 1942 on Yokayo series (alluvial loam) soils. The clonal material hails from the finest chateau in Sauternes. The Chevalier vineyard has alluvial soils planted on a bench with a small component of the aromatic Sauvignon Musque.
Tasting Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc exhibits classic aromas of quince, white nectarine, evergreen and fresh cut grass notes. The palate is clean and invigorating, with flinty minerality. The wine has depth and concentration attributable to lees contact and minimal handling. Ideal with oysters on the half shell.
Wine Spectator 92 Points: “This exceptionally well-structured wine almost vibrates with tangy acidity. It shows great balance and offers a palate-cleansing texture. Aromas of honeydew and vivid lemon as well as grapefruit accents give it plenty of substance on the palate.”
