Description

This vintage, we were fortunate to source 42 percent of our grapes from mature vineyards: Dutton-Cohen, Martinelli Home Ranch and Ritchie are all 35 years old. We then complemented this rich foundation with 33 percent Sauvignon Musque from Crinella, Dutton-Jewell and Meredith Estate. I have promoted the planting of this Bordeaux clone of Sauvignon Blanc, originally called Savagnin musque, for the past two decades and now benefit from the resulting opulent harvest! We continue to barrel ferment all of this wine in seasoned French oak, 18 percent of which is new. This allows us to intensively stir the lies twice each week during aging, building palate richness and "muscle" along with depth of flavor. The wine is held in barrel for a full six months to allow its complexity to develop.
