This wine is made from the estate’s highly aromatic “Musqué” clone of Sauvignon Blanc, planted in “Block 1” right next to the winery. Half of the grapes were picked early to capture the bright fresh Sauvignon Musque flavors, and the other half picked later to add richness and depth to the body.
Harvest: September 10th and 23rd
Fermentation: The grapes were picked in the cool mornings and immediately pressed. After chilling and settling the juice, the clear juice was racked into stainless steel tank and fermented at a cool temperature to retain all of the fresh “Musqué” floral and fruit characteristics.
Cooperage / Aging: The wine was aged for 6 months in stainless steel tank.
Bottling Date: January 14, 2015

Palate: Bright flavors of green fig and fresh pear, with lemon and floral notes
