2014 Presqu'ile Winery Santa Maria Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Comprised of 100% Presqu'ile Vineyard fruit, our 2014 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 interesting aromatics this clonal mixture provides 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, resulting in a wild, singular expression of Sauvignon Blanc.
Lime candy and nectarine flesh, along with a sharper yet plush tangerine blossom aroma. The palate features cut-grass notes, bell pepper, jalapeno and green peppercorn with a tightly wound acidity.
