2021 Quintessence Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
A 100% Sauvignon Blanc from one of our favorite growing sites on Red Mountain. This has been a winemaker favorite since its first vintage in 2016. The juice is fermented and aged in specially made egg-shaped French oak barrels which allow for a greater surface area at the bottom of the vessel and more lees contact resulting in rich texture balanced by classic Red Mountain mouth-watering acidity. On the aroma, honeycomb, white peach, and grapefruit. The palate is creamy and full—white peach, Honeycrisp apple, and a hint of pineapple. Drink now or hold onto it as it should be a white wine that will age gracefully over 5-15 years.
