Food Pairings for Selene Sauvignon Blanc Hyde Vineyard
Nose of apricots, pineapple and vanilla. Syrupy legs med body. Nice well rounded Calif SBlanc.
Grapes were whole-cluster pressed and the juice transferred into both new French oak (20%) and stainless steel barrels (80%) for fermentation. We repeated the “sequential fermentation” technique we experimented with last year, this time on the whole lot. Basically, we get the fermentation started with one yeast and finish with another, optimizing flavor, complexity, and texture. The wine remained in barrel on primary lees until late February when it was racked and bottled.
Intense and distinctive, aromatics include pineapple, green mango, guava, white nectarine, honeydew melon, lemon curd, orange liquor, white pepper, sandalwood, rose water, and beeswax. Savory and mouthwatering, with a concentrated, long finish.
792 cases produced.
Notes: New French oak and Stainless Steel barrels
