2019 Barrel Aged Sauvignon Blanc
We are honored and couldn't be more excited to share this special wine with you.
Our 2019 Barrel Aged Sauvignon Blanc received a 97-point rating from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - making it their highest-rated Sauv Blanc in the world for the 2019 vintage! 🥂
Aged 17 months in French Oak, this full bodied Sauvignon Blanc is truly one-of-a-kind. Since our inaugural 2016 vintage that wine critics hailed as one of the best SB's of the year, winemaker Jesse Katz has continued to floor fans and critics alike.
'We kept this wine in barrel (50% new french oak) for a full 17 months with weekly topping and stirring early on and later in its life monthly. The length it spent in barrel highlights the richness and the complexity of the fruit with the oak profile always playing a back role due to our unique barrels sent over from Bordeaux.
A stunning array of aromatics that are new and fresh but also have resemblance of the great Bordeaux Blancs of the world. Orange blossom, melon, caramelized pear, and citrus zest all battle for the leading roll in the bouquet of this unique Sauvignon Blanc.
Amazingly rich and deep, yet vibrant on the palate. There is a ton of tension as the layers and depth of the wine are pulled together by a beaming natural acidy that flawlessly glides across the palate. Enjoy now through 2030.' ~ Jesse Katz
