Wente Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Livermore Valley 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

The Sauvignon Blanc is picked in the cool hours of the morning and immediately crushed to tank to retain fruit vibrancy. Cold fermentation in stainless steel promotes fresh acidity and varietal character. An addition of Semillon before bottling adds a balancing richness to the crispness of the Sauvignon Blanc.
