Our Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in 100% stainless steel drums with native yeast at a controlled 60° F. When primary fermentation was complete, the wine was then sulfured to prevent Malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged on the lees and stirred twice a week before being bottled.
With climate variability as the new normal, Napa Valley grape growers aim to be resilient and adaptable. Their preparation and experience paid off in 2022 as growers faced triple-digit heat over five days in September, quickly followed by rain. Winemakers are calling the vintage “the tale of two harvests,” making it one of the more unique vintages in recent history.
