This white is fermented in French oak barrels, 30% of them new, and then aged in stainless steel—offering the best of both worlds. Quenching flavors of stone fruit highlight a rounded, rich palate, dusted in dried herb and earth.

Succulent, distinctive and wonderfully aromatic, with honeycomb, lanolin, lemon curd, dried mango, pineapple and baked yellow apple notes that leap from the glass. Spice, cardamom and matcha accents linger on the long, expressive finish.

This has aromas of lime zest, guava, green pepper and a touch of cardamom and white pepper. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity. Distinct green notes, but ripe and creamy, too. Drink now.

Coming from their estate (and some from Coombsville), the larger production 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Blueprint offers a vivid gold hue as well as juicy notes of lemon and lime fruits, medium-bodied richness, a vibrant, racy, yet textured mouthfeel, and a clean finish. Enjoy this undeniably delicious white over the coming year or so.

The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Blueprint was fermented in French oak barrels, 30% new, and aged in stainless steel tanks. It comes skipping out of the glass with bright, cheery scents of fresh grapefruit, white peaches and green apples with a touch of dill seed. Medium-bodied, crisp, clean and refreshing, it delivers a great intensity of citrus and stone fruit flavors with a hint of chalkiness and a persistent herbal finish.
