Hanna Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2016

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Notes: Our 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is bright and delicious. Aromas are of quince flower, fig, guava and nectarine. Flavors are of Meyer lemon, peach and grapefruit, with a hint of summer hay and ginger. The wine is plump and bright with zingy acidity and a seamless finish.

Hanna has evolved from a winery dependent primarily on outside growers, to a 100% estate winery, with 252 acres of planted vineyards in three of Sonoma County's finest appellations. Our own vineyards allow us to control every aspect of grape growing, and we feel our wine quality has improved immeasurably. Alexander Valley Red Ranch We affectionately call this our "Red Ranch" as it is currently planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. When we first bought the ranch in 1985, it was planted in large part to Chardonnay and French Colombard. We find the red loam soils and warm climate to be ideal for the red Bordeaux varieties. With gently sloping blocks and terraced hillsides, this 100 acre ranch is also home to a tasting room with panoramic views. The Mediterranean style tasting room sits atop a knoll overlooking our "Red Ranch" vineyard and Alexander Valley. A stunning wrap-around veranda is the perfect place to enjoy the view while sipping our award winning wines. The vineyard is home to our flagship Cabernet and Merlot. Open Daily 10-4 Read less

Our Sauvignon Blanc grapes were almost entirely hand harvested at night using tractors fitted with lights. An exception was Crinella which we machine harvested at night. The hand-picked fruit was picked into half-ton bins and hauled the short distance to the winery in the morning. At this point we hand sorted the fruit using a custom made sorting conveyor. The fruit was then destemmed and pressed while still cold. A combination of inoculated and indigenous fermentations was used. The Malolactic fermentation was conducted early to prevent development of buttery aromas. Our Sauvignon Blanc is aged on the lees until three to four weeks before bottling. This keeps the wine fresh and bright. Bottling takes place from November through May at monthly to bi monthly intervals. - Winery Color: Vibrant straw-colored with a tinge of green Aroma: Guava, Rangpur lime and mineral aromas evolve into Passion Fruit, and Buddah's Hand Citron, evoking images of nectarines and mid-summer hayride. Taste: Juicy yet crisp, with grapefruit, stone fruit, and guava flavors, and a spicy ginger finish. Length/Type of Fermentation: Stainless steel: 13% non-inoculated, 87% inoculated with select commercial yeasts Length/Type of Aging: Stainless steel on lees Alcohol: 13.20% Acid Level: 3.22 g/l Sugar Level: 0.19 g/l
