Frei Brothers Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Sauvignon Blanc grapes were whole-cluster pressed to maximize delicate flavors and preserve the naturally firm acidity. The juice was then settled before fermentation to create a softer, more elegant mouthfeel. Sur lie aging gave this wine layers of complexity that extend through the mid-palate and culminate in a refreshing finish. A small portion of the wine was aged in American oak to add layers of complexity after fermentation.

Frei Brothers Reserve was established in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley by Swiss immigrant Andrew Frei. In operation since 1890, Frei Ranch and the winery have played an integral part in establishing the region’s premier reputation for winemaking and continue to produce exceptional wines today by carrying on the rich legacy of both their home vineyard and Sonoma’s celebrated growing regions. Frei Brothers Reserve begins by growing the best grapes in the best growing regions and ends with award-winning wines. Frei Brothers Reserve also believes in better choices and better wine–today and for generations to come. Led by chief viticulturist Jim Collins, the wines are a pure expression of the land, made from premium grapes carefully grown in some of the best wine-growing regions in Sonoma County, including the Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley. The winery crafts six critically acclaimed wines, including Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel. Making better choices is also a part of the Frei Brothers Reserves sustainability journey that seeks to preserve natural resources without compromising the quality of the wine. The winery’s efforts have been certified by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance and include some of the following programs: • For every acre of land planted in vineyard, Frei Brothers Reserve sets aside one acre to be preserved as natural habitat • When the winery at Frei Ranch needed to expand, the brand chose to transplant a row of 20 redwood trees rather than cut them down • Frei Brothers Reserve uses fewer harsh chemicals, creating less pollution and reducing energy output • The winery treats and reuses 80 percent of its wastewater for activities like irrigation and frost protection • When replanting, the winery chips old vines for use as compost instead of burning them For more information, visit Frei Brothers Reserve on Facebook at Facebook.com/FreiBrothersReserve Read less

Light lemon and grapefruit notes. On the palate this is medium to light bodied with notes of melon and lemon, very light hints of spice and muted grassiness, and there are some oaky notes towards the finish. Though there is plenty of acidity and flavor here, it comes with a touch of flabbiness that is still not entirely unwelcome as part of the whole picture.

The cool climate enables Frei Brothers to produce a Sauvignon Blanc that exhibits a crisp, mineral-like mouth feel. With citrus and cut grass aromas and a long yet clean finish.
