Winemaker Notes: Striving to recreate the classic and food-friendly Sauvignon Blancs our family has long produced in Bordeaux, we planted three special clones on our home vineyard of Longwood Ranch in 2007. Clones 376 44% and 317 44% make up the majority of the planting but a little Musque 12% Selection adds complexity and a lovely bouquet. The result is a wine with an entrancing nose of pomelo and guava fruit accented by notes of honeysuckle, and candied lemon. The palate balances bright citrus, pineapple and lime zest flavors against vibrant acidity and a thrilling minerality. Ready to drink upon release, this is a perfect aperitif on its own but also pairs beautifully with a range of fresh seafood, salads, creamy pastas and creamy cheeses.
Terroir: Located at the corner of Atlas Peak and Oak Knoll on a soil type sand with alluvium fan which exhibits gravely deposits with low content of coarse fragment. Our Sauvignon Blanc is planting with a vine density of 2074 per acre which is reflected by low yield of nearly three tons per acre or 40 hl per hectare and a higher concentration of flavor.
