Our estate Margarita Vineyard occupies one of the Paso Robles region’s coolest growing environments, with a pronounced marine influence that allows for a slow, steady ripening of our Sauvignon Blanc fruit. The resulting wine is distinguished by its vivid varietal character, including crisp acidity and appealing mineral accents.
“PICK OF THE WEEK...FRESH AND RACY.”
-Laurie Daniel, McClatchy Newspapers
The Sauvignon Blanc vines at Margarita Vineyard occupy shifting elevations and soil densities along the slopes of Block 41. The crown of the block is more exposed, unfolding along rocky soils. As the block progresses to the lower elevation, the soils become thicker, and the temperatures even cooler. These varied conditions combine to yield a Sauvignon Blanc that exhibits natural dimension and crisp complexity.
Our aim is to produce a Sauvignon Blanc with varietal credibility that is reflective of the cooler growing conditions at Margarita Vineyard. Winemaking emphasis was placed on achieving pure Sauvignon Blanc expression, inclusive of preserving the fruit’s distinctive natural flavors and lively acid profile. The wine was accordingly cold fermented in stainless steel tanks at 55 degrees for an extended fermentation period of three weeks.
The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc’s brisk flavors and quenching character are a particularly fine match for sushi, oysters, lime-grilled prawns, lobster risotto and grilled citrus chicken.
