Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon 2015

Columbia Valley, Washington

WINEMAKER NOTES

This classic Bordeaux style white blend was crafted from the best blocks of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon we source from. A small portion of fruit was handpicked early in the season to retain natural acidity, while the remainder was harvested later at optimum ripeness to bring ripe, tropical fruit notes and character to this balanced wine. The Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to preserve the bright fruit characteristics in this wine, while the Sémillon was fermented in neutral French oak and brings texture and body to this blend.
