HourglassSauvignon Blanc 2018

Five contrasting vineyard sources and three distinct fermentation vessels provide a breadth of nuanced lots that create layers of complexity once blending is complete. Slow, low-temperature fermentations with regular lees stirring develops complexity, texture and depth. The component wines are assembled in varying proportions to achieve a final blend that wires richness with vibrancy and a complex array of aromas and flavors. Comprised of mainly Sauvignon Blanc with a touch of Semillon for added layers, this 2018 offers aromas of citrus with tropical notes that give the wine lift. To keep the wine lively and layered, winemaker Tony Biagi aged the wine partially in new French oak, neutral French oak and stainless steel and stirred on the lees to enhance the mid-palate. This will become one of your go-to Whites throughout the year.
