We farm Sauvignon Blanc at Jespersen Ranch. The vineyard is located in the north-western corner of the Edna Valley AVA just four miles from the 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.
After an early morning hand-harvest, we lightly whole-cluster pressed the grapes. We fermented the wine in a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral puncheon barrels, which are about twice the size of standard barrels. The wine was aged in the same vessels. It’s aromatically stunning, with ripe mandarin and pineapple aromatics. The palate is bright and tropical and outlined with a refreshing, citrus acidity.
