Chalk Hill Estate Bottled Sauvignon Blanc 2021
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Chalk Hill|
Our 2021 Sauvignon Blanc captures the exotic, vibrant and complex fruit character of our estate-grown grapes. The vineyards are ideally situated to take advantage of soil changes, different aspects, and exposures to sun and wind. A small amount of Sauvignon Gris adds layers of flavor and interest to the blend. In the winery, we preserve the distinctive aromatics of the grapes by minimizing exposure to air and fermenting with carefully selected cultured yeast in a combination of stainless steel and French oak. Aging on the lees with regular stirring bring all the elements together, giving us a complete and harmonious wine.
An attractive array of fruity, savory aromas leads to a nicely ripe but still lively palate that is packed with lime, grapefruit, fresh thyme, cucumbers and jicama. Hints of ginger and toast suggest a little barrel aging time, and add even more complexity.
