The model for our Sauvignon Blanc is a type of Japanese sake called Dai-Ginjo that is fruity, smooth, and elegant. We source the grapes from Bevill Vineyard in the south west part of Russian River Valley (RRV) AVA, which is cooler than the rest of RRV due to a proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Drastic temperature gap between night and day in this area nurtures a supple but refined acidity. Majority of soils are light textured clay and allow vines to mature slowly but steadily. Once whole clusters are gently pressed, 25% of the cuvee are fermented in used barrels for an extra texture while the rest are fermented in a stainless steel tank at low temperature to retain fruit expression. The two portions are combined after the fermentation and aged in a stainless steel tank for 10 months.
