Our Sauvignon Blanc conjures more savory aromas of flint, gunmetal, quartz, and tarragon.

Beautiful delicate qualities come through on the palate with minerality closing the finish along with a softer acidity than you often find in Sauvignon Blanc.
91 Pts James Suckling "This perfumed white wine offers a bright and zesty nose with aromas of limes, pears and underripe melon. Crisp and tangy, yet balanced on the palate. Some freshness on the finish. Drink now." Gold Medal- CA State Fair 95 Pts
While we lack the ancient limestone soils of the Loire, what we do have is a fault line that runs adjacent to our Sauvignon Blanc plantings. The eons of non-existential seismic activity have kicked up some really interesting mineral bands and incredibly unique profiles containing iron and flint.
Our 4 acre parcel with lower crop yields help retain flavor concentration. Whole cluster pressed, 100 % stainless steel fermented at 52 F after settling the solids.
Sauvignon Blanc is new on our estate and the goal when creating this wine was to have all of those quirky, previously unseen bits of earth from the fault line come through in the glass. The elements of flint are omnipresent on the nose-chalky marl that doesn't typically appear in our estate soils lends a stony reductive quality to the wine's aroma.
