2013 Cuvée Renee Sauvignon Blanc

2013 Cuvée Renee

Sauvignon Blanc

SONOMA COUNTY


—  SOLD OUT —

TASTING NOTES

Our inaugural Cuvée Renee Sauvignon Blanc was received with tremendous enthusiasm last year and we are even more thrilled with our 2013 vintage. Too often dismissed as a simple "porch sipper," we think SB can be far more than that and put just as much care into farming and crafting it as we do any of our other wines.

We sourced top-notch fruit from Dry Stack vineyard in Bennett Valley and Fallenleaf vineyard on the eastern side of Sonoma Mountain, allowing a mixture of climates and clonal selection to create a layered and complete wine. Once in the cellar, we tweaked our approach to further preserve SB's mouthwatering acidity and freshness. You’ll find the same wonderful texture and heady tropical and floral aromatics displayed by the '12, all with bit more snap and verve. Honeysuckle, peach, pineapple, juicy pink grapefruit and notes of citrus zest on the finish produce a wine that satisfies on every level.

Admittedly a bit nervous about introducing a new varietal into our lineup last spring, we took a bold leap of faith this year and nearly doubled our production after running out of the '12 in just a few months. We are absolutely thrilled with the results and delighted there is more to go around!
