Vineyard Notes: Shifflett Ranch in west foothills of Oak Knoll, musqué clone, family owned vineyard since 1940’s, bale clay loam soil, neighbors include Dominus and Trefethen.

Tasting Notes:

Combining the varietal styles from France, New Zealand, and California, this SB provides incredible aromatics immediately with a tropical nose of white flower, honey, and lemon merengue pie. A round entry of peach pit, jasmine, and citrus highlight a racy acidity that carries to the back of the palate with a texture and weight rarely found in Sauvignon Blanc. Finish of honeysuckle, beeswax, and lime zest.
