Elevation Sauvignon Blanc. Wild Rock 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes used to produce our 2011 Shannon Ridge Lake County High Elevation Chardonnay were picked from several different blocks to help create an elegant multi-layered wine with great complexity. The wine was barrel fermented in American oak and a portion was put through malolactic fermentation to help create a creamy buttery richness and soft vanilla flavors. Aromas of Pear, Green Apple, Tropical, Creamy Vanilla. Flavors of Green Apple, Ripe Pear, yet crisp, with full richness and a long smooth finish." -Winery
