2013 Sauvignon Blanc

The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a vivid varietal character that is rooted in our estate Margarita Vineyard. Here, amid one of the Paso Robles region’s coolest growing environments, the Sauvignon Blanc grape achieves a fine balance of ripeness and raciness, with crisp acidity and appealing mineral accents. 

Vineyard & Soils

The 2013 vintage comes exclusively from Block 41 at Margarita Vineyard, where the vines occupy rocky sedimentary soils that vary in density, elevation and exposure. As the block slopes downward from its crown, the soils become thicker, and the temperatures more brisk. These variances shape the fruit and bring complexity to the wine. 

Winemaking

Our aim is to produce an authentic Sauvignon Blanc that reflects the cooler growing conditions at Margarita Vineyard. In 2013, we performed an early pick at 23 Brix on September 5, followed by a second pick two weeks later. The first pick created a foundation of bright acidity, while the later pick contributed a layer of riper flavors. All lots were cold fermented at 55 degrees over an extended period to retain delicate aromatics and pure fruit flavors. 

Tasting Notes

The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc offers refreshing aromas of pear, gooseberry and citrus with a suggestion of jasmine and mineral. A full palate unfolds with rounded flavors of peach, grapefruit and guava. Notes of lime zest add lift to a clean, quenching finish. 
 

Cuisine Pairing

The 2013 vintage is a perfect match for classic Sauvignon Blanc pairings, including fresh sushi, oysters, seared scallops, roasted lime chicken and lemon sole fillet.
