WINEMAKER NOTES: Our inspiration for this wine is the beautiful white blends of ‘
Bordeaux. To craft this wine, we fermented the Sauvignon blanc and Semillon separately with different yeast strains in a combination of stainless-steel tanks, oak barrels, and acacia barrels. While the tank ferments were more delicate and floral, we employed batonnage to the acacia and oak barrels for texture and gravitas. Holistically, the wine is strikingly complex and unique.
