2016 Sauvignon Blanc, Vogelzang Vineyard

baehner fournier 2013 SAUVIGNON BLANCMade from one row of grapevines at the Vogelzang Vineyard in the Happy Canyon region of Santa Barbara County, our Sauvignon Blanc benefits from custom farming and a close collaboration between vineyard manager and winemaker. Known for its warm to hot daytime temperatures and only slight maritime influence, the Vogelzang Vineyard tends to produce wines that reflect this warmth and typically feature creamy citrus and melon notes. Grapes harvested in the cold hours before dawn are pressed whole cluster directly to a small stainless steel tank to settle overnight. The clear juice is then transferred to neutral French Oak barrels to ferment naturally with its own yeast.  The wine is allowed to ferment and develop on its own for 6 months in neutral barrels and bottled in the spring to capture the purity of the fruit and all its energy.

Bright and brilliant in the glass, our 2016 Sauvignon Blanc displays a pleasing acidity and broader palate, characteristic of the vintage. The wine contains pleasant notes of vanilla, tropical fruit and a finish of baked apple.Steve Clifton
