Layer Cake Sauvignon Blanc
The Sauvignon Blanc we love to drink requires a winemaking approach based on delicacy of handling and minimalism in fermentation. We let the grapes develop fully, which in our vineyards means concentrated and complex layers of fruit, evocative aromatics and perfect balance of flavor.
We put the fruit directly into the press in whole clusters, which helps retain as much of the rich fruit flavor as possible, and allows just enough structure from the skins as they get squeezed dry.
The fermentation is as hands off as it gets; cool gentle fermentation in stainless steel tanks, again the idea is to get the delicate flavors from the vineyard to the bottle without losing flavor, but also the stainless is completely neutral since any oak would cover over the subtle aromatics. The result is a clean refreshing wine, with pure layers of flavors and aromatics.
