WINEMAKER NOTES: Our inspiration for this wine was the beautiful white blends of Bordeaux. To create this wine, we fermented the Sauvignon blanc and Sémillon separately with different yeast strains. For the Sauvignon blanc, we chose a yeast strain that is recommended for fresh aromatic wines with fruit intensity. For the Sémillon, we selected a South African yeast strain that has a high ester production designed for aromatic whites. These grapes were harvested with balance in mind, creating a light fresh stainless steel fermented blend that is perfect for a summer day.

Stone Tower refers to the WWI memorial on top of Mount Battie that so many of our guests visit to get that postcard-perfect view of Camden Harbor and the outlying islands. $10,000 was donated in 2016 to the restoration and maintenance fund for the tower, and each bottle sold of Stone Tower donated $1 to that effort.
