This is a crisp clean refreshing style of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine offers fresh aromas and flavors of lemongrass apple and melon. They add Semillon which contributes an appealing fig character and a beautiful soft rich quality to the wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes The mostly stainless steel fermentation makes this a crisp, clean, refreshing style of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine offers fresh aromas and flavors of lemongrass, apple and melon. We add Semillon, which contributes an appealing fig character and a beautiful soft, rich quality to the wine. - Bob Bertheau, WinemakerVintage The 2007 growing season was similar to the 2005 vintage warm at thebeginning and average temperatures throughout the rest of the season with excellent ripening conditions.In May, two weeks before bloom, we saw a week of 100 degree temperatures.This heat spike lead to smaller canopy which allowed more lightpenetration and contributed to overall good flavor development in thefruit. The hot temperatures also resulted in smaller berries with concentrated flavors.Weather conditions during the summer and throughout harvest were idealwith mild to average temperatures.VinyardsSourced predominately from our Horse Heaven Vineyard (60%), as well as vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley.Columbia Valley vineyards lie in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains and receive just 6-8 inches of rainfall annually.Sandy soils with low fertility and low water-holding capacity enable precise control of vine growth.Warm, sunny days and cool evenings create ideal conditions for aroma and flavor development in the ripening grapes.A northerly latitude gives the Columbia Valley roughly two more hours ofsunlight daily during the peak-growing season than California, increasingthe regions ability to ripen fruit.WinemakingYeasts specifically designated for white Bordeaux varieties were used toinitiate the three-week fermentation and release varietal aromas.80% stainless steel fermented to preserve Sauvignon Blancs delicatefruit character.Technical Data Total acidity 0.65g/100mlAlcohol 13%pH 3.22Blend 85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% SemillonFood Pairing Foods: chicken, clams, halibut, oystersHerbs: basil, garlic, oregano, rosemary
