Margerum Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley 2007
2007 Margerum Sauvignon Blanc Vogelzang Vineyard300 six packs producedWe tweaked the winemaking this year to further extract the complexities of this superior Sauvignon Blanc. 24 hours of skin contact prior to pressing, 50% barrel fermentation in neutral Franoise Frres and 50% fermentation in a 1500L stainless steel tank. This is a cold and very long fermentation. The cold environment retains the CO2 produced from fermentation, keeping the lees suspended allowing low SO2 additions due to the high nutrient content and low temperatures. I now have two rows of Sauvignon Blanc at Vogelzang and they are farmed to perfection. I think this will be the best VV SB we have made to date.
We are a small producer of Syrah, a Rhone style blend called M5, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and a few other varietals. Our grapes are purchased from the finest growers in Santa Barbara County. In addition, we are beginning to import a few exceptional wines we have found in our travels to the wine regions of Italy and France.
