2019 Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley

100% Sauvignon Blanc

“A classic Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc balancing citrus and floral notes.” – David Ramey

palate

Beautifully textured with a crisp, bright finish.

vintage notes

The winter of 2019 was relatively mild, but record rains flooded many dormant vineyards on lower ground through March. Temperatures fluctuated April through June before evening out for a moderately warm growing season. Heat in early September gave everything a little push before a significant cooling trend slowed the pace of harvest. Yields were generally average.

winemaking

Whole cluster pressed, native yeast, non-ML, in a mixture of neutral oak barrels and stainless steel

aging

Sur lies aged for three months in 48% stainless steel barrels and 52% in neutral oak.
