2014 Sauvignon Blanc High Valley
100% Sauvignon Blanc
“Grown at an elevation of 1,800 feet, our Sauvignon Blanc shows classic varietal character without exaggeration.” – David Ramey
Beautifully textured with a crisp, bright finish.
2014 was a nearly perfect growing season for Lake County, with early bud break and little frost. A three-week heat spike during ripening caused the vines to shut down, delaying harvest. Lighter than average yields still arrived early.
Whole cluster pressed, native yeast, non-ML, in a mixture of stainless steel and old oak barrels. Sur lies aged for four months in 60% neutral oak, 40% stainless steel barrels.
