Our Estate Sauvignon Blanc
Robert Young has been growing Sauvignon Blanc since the early 90's but selling the fruit exclusively to other local wineries. The winery decided to make its first official Sauvignon Blanc with the 2017 vintage and coinciding with the winery's new label. The wine is sourced from our estate, Clone 1 SB block with average an vine age of 20+ years. We farm this block using low yield, sustainable methods and hand pick 100% of the fruit during harvest. The approach stylistically with regard to the varietal, is to allow the fruit be the primary flavor component in the wine and therefore put the wine in 100% nuetral barrels (5-6 year old barrels) so that there is little to no oak influence. The resulting style of the wine is fresh, with lots of stonefruit, melon and grapefuit flavors with nice minerality in the background, yet rich in texture.
