About This Item

The aromatics of Sauvignon Blanc in particular change significantly throughout the ripening process, so in order to attempt to capture the full range of aromatic potential, we harvest our Sauvignon Blanc in two lots.  The first is harvested slightly under-ripe at 19 brix, fermenting out to give top notes of lemon grass and green pepper, while the second lot is harvested a little over-ripe at 24 brix, giving us notes of ripe apricot and pineapple.  When the two lots are blended back together, they balance each other out perfectly.  Lightly oaking enchances the nose by adding some creamy vanilla notes, while rounding out the palate, giving the finished wine a little more weight.  

From vine to glass, our family is dedicated to producing harmoniously balanced and skillfully crafted wine, while fostering a culture rooted in the idea of family, quality, and integrity.  Since the Wiens family gathered in 1996 to plant our first vineyard, we have maintained our standards of releasing the highest quality wines with a passionate sense of pride and integrity. Cheers!
