Jespersen Ranch, Edna Valley
100% sauvignon blanc
We grow Sauvignon Blanc at Jespersen Ranch, our cool climate vineyard nestled into a hillside near the Pacific Ocean. Our three acres of vines thrive in the coastal environment and derive their character from the rolling banks of coastal fog in the morning and ocean breezes in the afternoon. This is a fresh and vibrant white wine that showcases honeydew melon, hints of grapefruit and fresh-cut grass.
Our goal is to create flavor balance in our Sauvignon Blanc. By picking our grapes in two passes we get the best of both worlds: one expression is crisp and tart and the other fruity and fresh. Most of the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and 10% of the wine was fermented in New French Oak barrels for just a kiss of warmth and roundness in the palate. This plus a small amount of secondary fermentation balance the naturally high acidity to create a meld of bright fruit and texture. Click here to download the tech sheet »
