2018 Deep Sea "Sea Horse" Sauvignon Blanc
Sourced from an acclaimed vineyard site in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, our Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of FPS Clone 1 (Wente Clone) and the Sauvignon Musqué, which offers more tropical fruit notes and fantastic aromatics. We harvest at 23 brix, and have kept to the same style for the last six vintages. Fermentation begins immediately after the grapes are pressed, starting with lower temperatures to control the process. Several types of yeast are used to control fermentation at a rate which maximizes desired flavors and aromatics. This crisp, refreshing style of Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks.
Smells like Pineapple, Pear, and Fresh Cut Hay. Tastes like Grapefruit, Lime, and White Nectarine. Pair with Shellfish, drink with Friends.
