Eisele Vineyard has long been considered one of the premier producers of great Sauvignon Blanc coming from California. The 2017 winter was the rainiest in five years. Despite fewer storms than usual in the second half of the rainy season, the water reserves ended higher in 2017 than in recent years, leading to normal bud break.  Temperatures were relatively mild, but a few heat spikes led to a period of accelerated canopy growth as the vines expended available energy, before slowing down. The subsequent bloom was the latest since 2012. The fruit set was good with smaller than average berry size. The ensuing summer was warm, and veraison started slowly. Continuing amiable weather in August spurred ripening of the Sauvignon Blanc; all the plots finished at the same time with particularly intense aromatics. “The nose displays an intense bouquet of guava and tropical fruits with a hint of gooseberry, then opens to Meyer lemons zest and mineral notes. The intensity and freshness are extraordinary. The palate is suave and focused, savory, almost salty. Tension and minerality carry through the lingering finish. Our favorite vintage of Sauvignon Blanc to date.”
