80% Sauvignon Musqué (Block 63) and 20% Sauvignon Blanc (Block 64). From our certified-sustainable estate Red Cedar Vineyard. The wine is a bright straw in color, with aromas of cut-grass, passion-fruit, pear, and melon. Its flavors are of citrus with some chalky minerality. Firm acidity follows a balanced mouthfeel into a zesty, well-rounded finish. The mild, even, 2012 growing season produced wines that are well-rounded with expressive fruit flavors. The grapes for this wine went directly to press at the winery. The juice was then cold settled for two days before racking off the heavy lees prior to fermentation. 96% of the wine was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel (to preserve aromatics and keep fermentation rates slow); 4% fermented in neutral French oak (to add a viscous mouthfeel and spice complexity). After fermentation, the wine was racked off the heavy lees and aged on the fine lees for three months prior to blending.
