2019 Cuveé Acero Sauvignon Blanc
Fermented in stainless steel, aged four months in neutral French oak barrels with light lees time
April 20, 2020
In the glass the wine has pale colors of light greenish-gold. The nose is aromatic with a mix of tropical fruit and citrus notes – guava, sweet lime, and white peach with a hint of lemon grass. In the mouth, abundant fruit flavors of pear, melon, mango, and lime zest and are balanced by a long and pleasingly dry, flinty finish.
With the 2019 white wine harvest, things returned to a more normal schedule in Alexander Valley. A long, even growing season with good fruit set, good rainfall and regular yields gave us the opportunity to dial in the flavor profiles, acidity and ripeness of our individual blocks. Our inspiration was a racier, lower alcohol more 'Sancerre-like' style to fully express our biodynamic farming and unique terroir.
