Tasting Notes:

Notes of apricot, stone fruits, and honey. The rich sweetness contrasts with the varietal’s natural acidity to create complexity while the oily, viscous texture for a long, lingering finish.

Vineyard Notes:

With a record crop, we had 30 tons of excess fruit and perfect rain-free fall weather to create this Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc wine. Our picking crews harvested this fruit on November 30th, one day before the season’s first large rain storm arrived. We carefully handselected 6 tons of fruit that had developed botrytis, or “noble rot”, a key component of developing an elegant Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc.

Production Notes:

The juice was fermented in French oak barrels utilizing three strains of yeast, each adding a different layer of complexity. The wine was aged seven months sur lie.

Winemaker Notes:

The 2005 season started three weeks ahead of schedule as unseasonably warm March weather caused an early bud break. Summer was characterized by an extremely mild and temperate growing season which allowed for steady maturation.
