Rancho Zabaco Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2008
After harvest, the grapes selected for this wine were whole cluster-pressed, in order to avoid harsh phenolics. The must was then chilled to allow most of the solids to settle before being racked to the fermenter to give a more elegant mouthfeel. The clear juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks (70%) and oak barrels (30%) at 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit for two to three weeks. The wine was aged sur lie for two months prior to racking, fining and filtering. The wine then spent two months in bottle before release.

Our Rancho Zabaco Sauvignon Blanc exhibits intense aromas and flavors of lime peel, cut grass, and gooseberry with notes of ripe peach and tropical fruit. With a touch of minerality, the mouthfeel is both crisp and refined and has an exceptionally lengthy finish. The wine is elegant and expressive, showing the many great varietal characters of a cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc.
