Mauritson Wines Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Mauritson ancestors first planted grapes in Dry Creek Valley in the 1880s, but they shipped what they produced back home to Sweden. Over the years the family became a major grower, with a total of more than four thousand acres of ranchland and vineyards; three-quarters of that land, however, is now under Lake Sonoma. The sixth generation of the Mauritson family is now represented by owner/winemaker Clay Mauritson who made his first vintage in 1998. Enjoy this wine with light appetizers, salads, seafood dishes or on its own on a warm summer evening.

With over 270 acres of estate vineyards and close relationships with longtime growers throughout Sonoma County, we are able to source and manage our favorite blocks from each vineyard throughout the growing season and select the most premium fruit during harvest.Each vineyard and appellation we source from carry particular qualities in either the terroir or the farming style that we look for when considering a Mauritson wine release. Six generations of farming has taught us a few things about choosing premium fruit! Each harvest, the best from our 230 acres throughout the Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys is reserved for our Estate Wines. These wines, which include our signature Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon, showcase the fruit-forward, floral and spice-driven characteristics attributed to these appellations. Winemaking may have been the logical evolution in our family’s long history of farming in the Dry Creek Valley, however, it took an absence from the valley and attention to those inner voices that led Clay Mauritson back to these same vineyards that he spent planting, tending and picking as a teen. What he came to realize was that he already had a lifetime of understanding about the subtleties and strengths of each micro-climate within the Dry Creek, Rockpile and Alexander Valleys. The only thing left was to DREAM BIG! Tasting Room We are open daily from 10-5. Group Tasting by Appointment, Handicap Accessible, Picnic Facilities, Wine Tasting, Wine Tours by Appointment.
