2014 Small Lot Series Sauvignon Blanc

750ml

"The Small Lot Series give me the opportunity to take chances, this time with Sauvignon Blanc and all wild yeast fermentations.  What's in the bottle says Drink Me!"  

                                                                                        -Melanie Krause, Winemaker

The Vintage: The 2014 vintage in the Snake River Valley was strong for both red and white wines. From the perspective of the winemaker, it was about as close to a perfect year as you can get! There were plenty of warm days in mid-summer to ripen the grapes, but also a long, cool fall allowed for flavors to develop ahead of sugars. The growing season presented close to long-term averages with budbreak in mid-April, gradual warming in May and June, hot temperatures (90’s) in July and August, then cooling off to the 70’s and 80’s for September and October.

Tasting notes

Here you will find aromas of Asian pear and lemon balm afloat a backbone of spritely acidity. Fresh and alluring, we call this experiment a success.

Production notes

Grapes are picked in September then pressed whole-cluster.  Juice is settled to clarify, then put into all neutral barrels for fermentation. 100% native yeast fermendation. Wine is filtered and bottled in January.

Vineyard notes

Symms Vineyards.

Other notes
