Tasting Notes: An elegant and refined style of Sauvignon Blanc that is subtle and balanced, with minerality and bright natural acidity. On the nose, aromas of citrus, iron, wet stone and a hint of D’Anjou pear tempt your senses, while a crisp lightness and underlying notes of fleshy grapefruit and lime zest please the palate.
Production & Style: Creating a unique expression of California Sauvignon Blanc starts in the vineyard. This vintage was sourced from two family vineyards – Emmolo Rutherford provides fresh citrus characteristics, while Emmolo Oak Knoll lends crisp minerality. 2013 was consistently warm and dry, with harvest running from mid-August through early September. The grapes were lightly pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. I aged the wine in both stainless steel and older French oak barrels, adding depth and complexity while preserving the variety’s character.
