Tasting Notes:

Not your typical Sauvingnon Blanc. This wine has an Old World air about it with deep rich color, tones of oak and tannis commonly found in red wines. Very nice Bordeaux style Sauvingnon Blanc. Great with seafood, chicken, or other light foods.

Vinification
Manual harvest with crates.
Direct pressing with full grapes.
