Trione Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2008
The grapes were harvested early in the morning and delivered to the winery cool. They were then pressed whole cluster, imparting a vibrant, green hue to the juice. After settling clean, the juice was then racked and additions were made prior to inoculation with VL3 yeast. This particular yeast enhances the characteristic aromas of gooseberry found in Sauvignon Blanc. The juice was fermented to dryness in just over two weeks at around 50˚F. The wine was then racked to five neutral French oak barrels, with the balance transferred to a stainless steel tank. The wine remained in barrel and tank for three months, at which time it was racked, blended, finished and bottled.
