Fermentation: 50% stainless steel fermentation at cool temperatures to ensure a rich, fruity varietal character. 50% barrel fermented. Alcohol 13% by volume.
Aging: Combined stainless steel and French and American oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: The Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown in the Hames Valley in Monterey consistently produce wines that yield a hint of Pear and grapefruit aromas. Aging in oak barrels helps to enhance the rich body and crisp, smooth finish this wine possesses.
