2019 Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting Notes: This sauvignon blanc is a fantastic mix of fresh citrus zest and ripe melon. Focused and bright, with creamy tropical notes throughout and a long, fruit-filled finish.
Winemaker's Notes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc fruit from the Bavarian Lion Vineyard in Knights Valley, on the eastern edge of Sonoma County. All clusters are gently hand picked and whole cluster pressed to retain freshness. Fermentation happens in both used and carefully selected new French oak barrels to impart creamy mouthfeel and aromatic elements. Multiple yeasts are employed to express a variety of flavor components.
The Vintage: The 2019 vintage was a bit warmer than previous years in Knights Valley. Those extra sunny days perfectly ripened this fantastic Bordeaux variety. As always, the quality work of the crew at Bavarian Lion set the stage for incredible wines to be made!
