Spring Mountain Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Spring Mountain District Estate 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Effusive in its expression of the site specific soils and climate of the Spring Mountain Vineyard. A floral perfume enhanced by white peach nectarine Asian pear and Meyer lemon and a subtle herbal quality offer a mouth-watering invitation to the wine. Rich and elegant on the palate the abundant layers of fruit linden and mineral mirror its aromatics. A crisp acidity balances a lush mouth-feel making its lingering impression one of completeness.

he new Spring Mountain Vineyard was once three separate properties each with its own vineyard and winery: Spring Mountain Vineyards (Miravalle) 257 acres, Chateau Chevalier (Chevalier) 120 acres, and Draper Vineyards (La Perla) 435 acres. The upper most property on the estate, La Perla, was founded in 1873 by Charles Lemme and expanded by the Schilling Spice family. Originally 285 acres it had the first Cabernet Sauvignon planted on Spring Mountain. The old winery remains today along with much of its original equipment and horse drawn carriages and wagons. Immediately below La Perla, and eventually added to it was the first vineyard planted by Fredrick and Jacob Beringer in 1882. These terraced hillsides were planted in a wide assortment of grape varieties to support the Beringer brothers fledgling winery. Adjoining to the north of the Beringer vineyard was a Frenchman, Fortune Chevalier, whose stone winery, Chateau Chevalier, was making wine in 1891. And finally, next door to Chevalier was Tiburcio Parrott who grew olives, citrus and grapes. Parrott built a grand home on the estate which he named Miravalle. Read less
