2020 Sauvignon Blanc, CaliforniaGrounded by Josh Phelps
The 2020 growing season in our california vineyards was cool and mild until heat in August caused ripening to accelerate, resulting in harvest starting one to two weeks early in most regions. While the crop size was smaller than expected, we were impressed with the consistently high quality of the fruit.
Harvested in the cold early morning hours, the fruit was rushed to the winery for immediate loading into the press. The fresh juice was fermented cold in jacketed stainless-steel tanks, allowing us to maintain the vibrancy and bright natural acidity of this classic Sauvignon Blanc.
Aromas of white peach and guava are highlighted by fresh lime and Meyer lemon notes. In the mouth, the wine is alive and refreshing, with a long finish and lingering hints of jasmine, green apple and Bosc pear.
