Always a source of pride from our Estate vineyard, the "old", original Sauvignon Blanc plantings continue to produce a beautiful, heady aromatic wine. The 2020 vintage is no exception. 

Fermentation takes place in both Stainless Steel tanks and French oak barrels, playing on the crisp, citrus notes, lending the mildly creamy mouthfeel. Continuing the aging process in French oak for one year allows bright fruit and lively acidity to shine, providing a defined structure with a finish of creamy lime and untoasted oak notes. 

Expect a bouquet of Meyer lemon, white peach, and white Japanese lilacs to greet you on the nose. Your first sip will delight in a medley of citrus fruit and a creamy mouthfeel, while the untoasted oak opens to vanilla and almond extract, reminiscent of Key Lime Pie Cheesecake. You cannot go wrong pairing this wine with creamy cheeses, summer harvest vegetables or grilled seafood.

Aromatics: Meyer lemons, white florals, white peach, ripe melon, key lime zest and almonds

On the Palate: Key Lime zest, ripe melon and stone fruits, light-bodied, bright acidity, untoasted oak finish

Enjoy now and until 2026
