Winery Notes: "2016 was the first vintage where we had normal rainfall in many years and no serious heat spikes, like we did in 12, 13, 14 and 15. This excellent weather, allowed us to harvest everything at a perfect level of flavor and textural development. We saw this as an opportunity to pick the Sauvignon Blanc vineyard twice. The first pick was of all of the plants that had a lower than average crop size, because of this they developed a little faster and the smaller grapes had amazing intensity. The second pick, which happened considerably later, had an average sized crop and the additional hang time provided a much more tropical flavor profile. The final blend has the “in your face” intensity of the first pick, but it gives way to the tropical qualities, from the second pick, that is a hallmark of our past Sauvignon Blancs. This wine displays more minerality, density and attitude, than previous vintages."
