Bright, super-fresh aromas of sweet citrus, melon, guava and white flowers
pure, vibrant flavors of grapefruit, guava, gooseberry, fleshy melon and white peach, with a refreshing minerality invigorating the wine’s long, crisp finish.
After abundant harvests from 2012 through 2014, the 2015 vintage produced a notably lighter crop. A warm, dry winter fostered early bud-break, and consistently mild summer weather, with a few late-season heat spikes, led to our earliest harvest ever. (Since Cakebread Cellars has been around since 1973, that’s saying something.) The light crop produced small sauvignon blanc berries and clusters boasting intense varietal flavors. We harvested the fruit between August 4th and September 2nd with a perfect balance of sugars and acidity.
