WINEMAKING
Priest Ranch Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in 100% stainless steel drums with native yeast at a controlled 60 degrees F. When primary fermentation was complete; the wine was then sulfured to prevent Malolactic fermentation. Aged on the lees for seven months, stirred twice a week and then just once a week for the last three months before being bottled in April of 2018.

HARVEST NOTES
The warm summer days and crisp nights provided ideal conditions for producing balanced fruit with grape ripeness, bright acidity and full flavor throughout the near-perfect growing season. In 2017, we harvested our Sauvignon Blanc vineyards on August 23rd, August 31st, and September 1st.
