Details of vinification and oaking:

This is our house Sauvignon Blanc made from the part of the Round Mountain vineyard that wasn’t selected for that single-vineyard wine. About 10% of the wine was barrel fermented and 20% made in a concrete “egg”; the balance cold- fermented in stainless. Bright tropical and typical Sauvignon herbaceous notes with a rich, fruity palate and lively acidity.
