Our inspiration was a racier, more "Sancerre-like" style to fully express our biodynamic farming and unique terroir. Our Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown on richer, loamier soils for better canopy protection and distinct varietal aromas and flavors. We use a full range of clones to create a wine of greater complexity. These include our 40 year + old vine block which is planted with an heirloom clone, an Entav 378 Sauvignon Blanc clone (adds minerality & lemon zest) and two blocks Musqué clone which adds distinctive aromatic herbal and tropical fruit notes. To round out the blend we add a touch of Sauvignon Gris to enhance citrus aromatics.

Wine Makers Notes

To preserve its vibrant fruit flavors 2018 Cuveé Acero Sauvignon Blanc was stainless-steel fermented at cool temperatures with a select yeast strain to enhance sauvignon blanc aromatics. Post fermentation, the wine spent four months in neutral oak barrels with light lees contact to improve mouth feel.

Tasting Notes

In the glass the wine has pale colors of light greenish-gold. The nose is extremely aromatic and has a mélange of fruit and herbal notes – papaya, sweet lime, and pear with a hint of lemon verbena. In the mouth, abundant fruit flavors of honeydew melon, yuzu and pineapple and are balanced by a long and pleasingly dry, flinty finish.

Food Paring

This sauvignon blanc can be enjoyed as an aperitif and pairs beautifully with goat cheese, salads, chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes.
