2013 Sauvignon Blanc
Horse Heaven Hills
Upon pouring this lively Sauvignon Blanc, bold scents of passion fruit, ripe peaches, and citrus erupt from the glass. Rich fruit flavors of citrus and melon team with bright acidity, ending with a lengthy but refreshing finish.
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Total Acidity 0.60 g/100 mL
Alcohol Content: 13.0%
Fermentaion: 14-20 days with Alchemy II yeast
Temperate weather patterns from winter through spring left most vineyards in good condition for the growing season.
The summer of 2013 was one of the warmest in the past decade with favorable temperature conditions extending into fall.
Accelerated ripening due to the warm season was slowed by cooler temperatures and light rain events mid-September. The timing and changes in temperatures aided in hang time development resulting in stellar fruit characters and flavors.
