2015 Viluko Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc

2015 Viluko Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc

Our third installment is Karen's favorite. The 2013 was loved for its wonderful fruit presence, the 2014 for its minerality and depth. The 2015 vintage was harvested earlier, with brix barely cresting 22 on the refractometer. This resulted in bright acidity and fresh pure notes of grapefruit, key lime, lemon verbena and tangerine. Didn't you know that Karen loves grapefruit!  A mere 155 cases were made.


Please note: You must order a minimum quantity of 1.

Production Notes:

Blocks E1 and E2 were hand-harvested in a single day. The whole clusters were gently pressed over several cycles culling any tannin to allow for only the purest free run. This juice went to an insulated stainless steel tank on its own wild yeast to partially cold ferment at 54-58 degrees, then finished on its lees in neutral French oak barrels for six months without stirring. Malolactic fermentation was arrested to preserve the fresh, delicate fruit flavors.

Winemaker Notes:

A hue of just ripe lemon. Bright acidity. Fresh pure explosions of grapefruit complemented by key lime and lemon verbena with hints of tangerine and lychee. Finishes with a sweep of minerality and lime peel notes.
