Ladera 2017 Sauvignon Blanc
Napa Valley California
The Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Musque grapes were harvested in the cool hours of the night then whole cluster pressed to preserve the delicate fruit aromas. The juice was cold settled for 24 hours in tank then transferred to stainless steel (60%) and French oak barrels (15% new, 25% neutral) to undergo fermentation. The wine was aged sur-lies for approximately 6 months and stirred routinely to create a long, rich and complex palate. The 2018 Ladera Sauvignon Blanc expresses intense floral aromas of honeysuckle and citrus blossom with heightened notes of gooseberry, tangerine and sweet oak. The lively palate is layered with tropical and citrus fruits, balanced with a silky texture and racy acidity that linger through the finish.
