/ Case of 12

Zingy Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing as the name suggests. Comprised of Clone 1 Sauvignon Blanc, this single varietal bottling is full of acidity and brightness.

Tasting Notes

This wine is bright and clean. Its mood and temperature are cool and refreshing, kicking of with fresh lime, white grapefruit, green pineapple, and fresh cut grass. It is racy, snaps like a crisp apple, and continues on the palate with gooseberr y, pineapple, and mango.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Almost clear with a light hue of gold, reminders of meadows and lemongrass play on the nose of this aromatic wine. The palate is zesty and indeed zingy, with notes of kiwi, grapefruit and savory herbs. The palate zips with texture and flavor, offering both lime-peel and white peach elements.
Vineyard Notes
The excitement of our estate harvest each year begins with a Sauvignon Blanc pick, and 2021 began at 4 a.m. on September 9th. The "Oasis” block, named for the volunteer Palmetto tree there, was the first to be picked and produced the grapes which we selected as the “zingiest”. All own-rooted Clone 1 Sauvignon Blanc, in 6x10 rows on rolling terrain, 4.91 tons were picked at 21.0º brix.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes were night-harvested by hand and immediately transported to the winery to be gently fed into our Puleo bladder press as whole berries, but no stems. Gently pressed over a period of about an hour, the juice was settled, then racked off solids and inoculated with VL3 yeast. Fermentation was kept slow and cold (60°), and Malo-lactic fermentation was inhibited. That’s it - grapes and yeast! The wine was lightly bentonite fined, cold stabilized and cross-flow filtered, then bottled the same year picked! Vegan.

Other Notes
The Vintage With only one pre-season storm event, 2021 was another drought year. Our 38-year old vines reach deep into the aquifer, so other than some smaller than normal leaf canopies, the vines produced 130 tons of beautifully balanced and flavor concentrated grapes. The season was near-perfect with a long ripening season, cool mornings, ample fog and few heat events. Harvest started and ended a bit later than usual, providing extended “hang time” for grape development. Might be epic!
