Margerum Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley Purisima Mountain Vineyard 2005
2005 Margerum Sauvignon Blanc Purisma Mtn VineyardThis turned out rather good. I really get to pick and choose what grapes I take from this vineyard by the good grace of the Beckmen's. This year Louis and I walked the vineyard many times taking field samples and narrowed our section and clone based on the balance (pH and sugar) and propensity of flavors. Great acidity balanced with pure crystal clear fruit that is not grassy green nor tropical. It is like biting into a cold grape. Picked at 22.5 brix with a tremendous acidity, low pH and loads of real Sauvignon Blanc fruit. I always keep this back a bit because it needs a little bottle age to reveal itself. My ode to Dageneau.
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.
