The 2020 vintage began with a dry and somewhat warm winter, waking the vines up early. Spring frost and some inclement weather resulted in yields that were smaller than average. The season was a warm one but ﬂuctuated between abnormally cold and intense heat, resulting in smaller yields giving nicely concentrated fruit. We were able to harvest some lovely grapes this year, producing wines of intense character and lovely complexity. The Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blancs and Rosé are wonderfully aromatic with real richness, lush fruit and bright, long ﬁnishes. It has been a joy to follow the elevage of these wines and we look forward to sharing and enjoying these wines with you.
Our 2020 Estate Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a playful combination of lemon verbena, lychee and fresh grapefruit on the nose. On the palate the wine shimmers with bright acidity, buoyed by lime, white peach and lemongrass with a mineral finish. Our Sauvignon Blanc is 100% fermented in stainless steel to focus the primary fruit, and mineral notes. While the wine is aged on its lees, we gently stir them to enhance the weight and richness of the mouthfeel.
