Tiradora means “sharpshooter” in Spanish, as this is a direct, focused wine. Layered and complex, this Sauvignon Blanc will keep you intrigued with each sip. Aromatics of gooseberry, lemongrass, and white pepper combined with smoky hints of flint and sea salt. Well balanced with bright acid, the wine has tension and verve bringing length and energy, plus a slightly rounder mid-palate which carries delicate richness due to a small addition of Semillon. The wine is fermented in a combination of stainless steel, concrete, and neutral barrels with partial malolactic fermentation. Aged for 6 months before filtration and bottling. *Our “tiradora” image on the label is a silhouette of the eldest Gleason daughter, Mara, as she aims a .22 from the front porch of the barn at the vineyard. A little target practice on empty wine bottles! Technical Information: Soil Types: Mocho Loam - this sandy, alluvial soil is fine-grained, fertile and deposited by water flowing from the Santa Ynez River. Due to their sandy nature, there is little water retention in these soils which creates higher aromatics and density in the fruit.
