Winemaker Anthony Austin Notes
Our Sauvignon Blanc juice is fermented slowly at very cold temperatures. When the fermentation approaches completion, approximately 20% of the juice is cold-transferred to finish fermenting in new French oak barrels. The wine in barrels is blended back with the stainless steel batches prior to any suggestion of oak character in the blended wine. This limited exposure to new barrels gives the wine richness and fullness to the mid-palate. From a winemaking perspective, the dry growing season produced the benefit of inducing moderate stress on the vines, which limited growth of the canopy and focused the vines' energy on the grapes.
