2017 Vineyard Collection Sunset Sauvignon Blanc

Price: $20.00
Now we’re getting somewhere and that somewhere is in the heart of aromatic wine grapes... Ancient Lakes. Anchored in limestone, this wine rages with kumquat, winter grapefruit, lemon thyme, gunpowder, oyster shells, all drawn out to infinity. - Charles

91 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)
“From the Ancient Lakes AVA and all barrel fermented, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Vineyard Collection is a drop-dead serious wine that has tons of reductive notes of crushed time, ozone, match stick, and white flowers. It’s medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, and a killer wine. Either give it a healthy decant or at least another 6-12 months of bottle age.”

“The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Sunset Vineyard reveals notes of lemon oil and delicate botanicals framed by light reduction that would be very much at home in the eastern Loire Valley. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, pure and racy, with a textural attack underpinned by loads of cut and chalky tension. This is a world away from the insipid, ester-laden concoctions that commonly pass for Sauvignon Blanc, and it’s refreshing in every sense. The price is outrageously low for the quality.”

The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices. Sunset Vineyard: (100%) Located in the Ancient Lakes AVA near the town of Quincy, Sunset Vineyard is situated on one of the land’s many coulees (a canyon formed by the draining of the Missoula flood waters). Thin limestone soils with an elevation above 1200 feet provide Sunset the classic terroir of the Ancient Lakes AVA that have helped define the style of white grapes grown in the region.
