Meyer & Ferrington Vineyards, Anderson Valley
Sauvignon Blanc in Anderson Valley is rare as it is generally planted in warmer climates. We were fortunate to source grapes from two vineyards, Meyer and Ferrington, both located near the town of Boonville at the warmer end of the Valley. Fermentation was started in a stainless-steel tank and completed in neutral French oak barrels to allow stirring on the yeast lees. This helped to soften and enhance fullness on the palate. Malolactic fermentation was avoided preserving fresh fruit flavors. This wine shows notes of citrus blossom, cream, and tropical fruit. Flavors of lemon zest and fig, with musqué and flinty notes on the finish persisting on the palate focused by crisp acidity.
