Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon Blend
Our 2018 blend is comprised of 35% Semillon and 65% Sauvignon Blanc. The distinct vineyards of Double River and Smith-Cerne are revealed in this elegant representation of our best-loved white wine. These two varietals are picked at different times at optimum ripeness to bring balance and harmony into your glass. The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc fermented slowly under controlled, low temperatures in stainless steel, top reserve bright and crisp fruit characteristics in the wine.
A significant amount of Semillon was fermented and aged gracefully in neutral French oak, enhancing the bouquet and contributing to a more powerful, yet tasteful mouthfeel. These barrels were blended back with the expressive and lively wines in the stainless steel tanks and provided great body and weight in this cuvée. All winemaking techniques were carefully executed, to prevent oxidation and optimizing the vivid fruit-forward nuances of these two varietals.
