Comprised of 100% Presqu'ile Vineyard fruit, our 2016 rendition of this exuberant variety captures the intensity and precision that only cool climate Sauvignon Blanc can deliver. Utilizing six unique clones not widely planted in California, we find the complexity and aromatics in this clonal mixture to be utterly distinctive. Native yeast fermentation in a combination of concrete egg, stainless steel and neutral French oak, sur lie aging, and light lees stirring capture and amplify the many different facets of our site. The result: A wild, singular expression of Sauvignon Blanc.

Intensely fragrant and juicy, offering a harmonious blend of fleshy blood orange, makrut lime, Key lime pie, marmalade and lemon curd notes. Gains momentum on the finish, where the acidity and flavors crescendo. Drink now. 69 cases made.

This bottling from an extremely cool-climate vineyard is light and easy on the nose, with ripe apples, sharp herbs, moss and an inherent grassy character deep within. It's extremely lively on the palate, with compellingly delivered acidity and a lime-skin tension carrying flavors of dried dill and sharp lemony citrus. It's one of the better Sauv Blancs of the vintage.
