Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon were pressed directly and aged in neutral French oak for thirteen months to produce this ode to Bordeaux. The Rattlesnake Hills AVA is our favorite region for Bordeaux varietals because it gets so much sunshine during the day, but the grapes retain freshness and acidity because of the colder nighttime temperatures. The Sauvignon Blanc from here shows the riper side of the grape without all of the typical green varietal associations while the Semillon infuses a dense, honeyed element. A golden elixir of green apple, elderflower, white peach, and fig.
