2016 Charles Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc   

The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc balances beautiful stonefruit in the bouquet with that crisp, refreshing quality that we love for food pairing or simply enjoying on a sunny day.

We harvested estate-grown fruit in the cool of the morning, then pressed it in our traditional, wooden basket press. This wine was fermented with wild yeast and wild ML strains, and aged in a combination of stainless steel and older French oak barrels. The 2016 vintage offered a nice, even growing season and the Sauvignon Blanc thrived -- a relief after several low-yielding vintages that left us consistenly sold out of this release.
