Cep Sauvignon Blanc Hopkins Ranch Russian River Valley 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Owner Nick Peay and winemaker Vanessa Wong met Bob Hopkins a few years ago at an Integrated Pest Management class. Nick took a shine to Bob and mentioned that his brother wanted to make crisp, minerally, zippy Sauvignon Blanc, but, of course, we cannot grow Sauvignon Blanc at our very cold estate vineyard. Bob was kind enough to offer us Sauvignon Blanc from his blocks of 40 year old vines. And the result is delicious. This is not the Bordeaux style of Sauvignon Blanc that Vanessa made when she was winemaker at Peter Michael. On the contrary, the grapes are picked to capture the citrus and chalky side of Sauvignon Blanc. It is tank fermented to retain acidity and freshness and bottled in the January following the vintage." -Winery

Set on the northern shore of Lake Waramaug, Hopkins Vineyard, a family-owned Connecticut Century Farm, proudly maintains a tradition of making fine wines of award-winning quality. In 1787, Elijah Hopkins, returning from the Revolutionary War, chose this rich and fertile site on Lake Waramaug to settle his family and start the Hopkins Farm. Our farm has witnessed many diversified forms of agriculture over the years including the raising of sheep, race horses, grain crops, tobacco, and in the more recent past dairy farming. In 1979, the first vines were planted and our 19th century barn was converted into a state-of-the-art winery. Read less
