About Sauvignon Blanc
Since 1993, our estate grown Sauvignon Blanc has been styled along
the lines of fine white Bordeaux. The grapes are whole cluster pressed
and the juice is cold settled overnight. It is then moved to neutral
French oak barrels where fermentation is completed. The wine is kept
sur-lie for 6 months with weekly stirring. This marries the wine's
bright flavors and acidity with the rich, yeasty elements provided by
barrel contact. Batonnage and extended sur-lie aging create a texture
that weaves layers of fruit and vanilla into a rich and complete wine.
About Spring Mountain Vineyard
Spring Mountain Vineyard is an 845-acre estate on the eastern slopes of Spring Mountain in Napa Valley
where austere soils produce extremely low yields of intensely flavored, long-lived wines. Only 225 acres
are planted to vine, representing 135 discrete vineyard blocks with multiple soil types, exposures and
microclimates. The privately owned estate is comprised of four historic vineyards first planted to vine in
the late 1800s. Only estate bottled wines are produced.
