Comprised of 100% Presqu’ile Vineyard fruit, our 2015 rendition of this exuberant variety captures the intensity and precision that only cool climate Sauvignon Blanc can deliver.  Utilizing six unique clones not widely planted in California, we find the complexity and aromatics in this clonal mixture to be utterly distinctive. Native yeast fermentation in a combination of concrete egg, stainless steel and neutral French oak, sur lie aging, and light lees stirring capture and amplify the many different facets of our site. The result: A wild, singular expression of Sauvignon Blanc.

Reviews

Wine Enthusiast: 91 Points, Highly Recommended
“Light, clean and fresh on the nose, this bottling from a rather extremely sited vineyard on the western end of the appellation shows cut lawn, lemongrass, squeezed lime and wet concrete on the nose. The palate is zesty and sour at first, but a honeydew element warms it up nicely.”
- Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast, October 2016
