Winemaker Michael Weis Notes
“Mellow” is a great word for the white grape harvest in 2009. Long, steady periods of moderate temperatures ripened the Sauvignon Blanc grapes in such a way that high sugars were not an issue. The lack of excessive heat and heat spikes allowed us to make wines at more moderate alcohols while still retaining a tremendous amount of fruitiness and acidity. A great year for whites!
