2016 Sauvignon Blanc

2016 Sauvignon Blanc – Sold Out
Hopkins River Ranch

This wine expresses all that we love about the fruit from Hopkins River Ranch: bright, complex aromas with a zesty acidity – a fresh and lively delight!

  • Tasting Notes: Fresh aromas of citrus blossom, honeydew melon, white pear and wet stone. On the palate, passion fruit flavors with a hint of refreshing mandarin orange. Full of life with a long, crisp finish. Drink Now – 2019
  • Winemaking: Whole-cluster pressed; 100% Sauvignon Blanc
  • Vintage: 2016; Finally some relief from California’s persistent drought as we received average levels of rainfall at the vineyard and throughout Sonoma County. The ripening season saw cooler than average daytime temperatures and cold nights, perfect for intense, complex wines. Excellent fruit quality despite slightly below average yields
