The Estate Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of several blocks planted at 900ft elevation. It displays everything one would expect from Sauvignon Blanc grown at altitude in rock-driven soils: exotic fruit character grounded by serious textural and structural components. Aromas of Meyer lemon and Thai basil flood the nose, with background notes of pear and lemon blossom to add intrigue. On the palate, the depth typical of 2015 is on full display, with a broad, rich texture counterbalanced by razor acidity and superb length bolstered by flavors of fennel and lemon zest.
