Mercer Canyons 2016 Sauvignon Blanc

White peach and grapefruit mingle with notes of citrus zest. The fruit is lush and juicy in the mouth with bright, fresh acidity. A touch of fruit sweetness creates a wine that is sleek and balanced.

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were machine harvested in the early morning hours to allow the fruit to arrive at the winery cool. Once at the winery, the juice was gently pressed away from the grape skins. the freshly pressed juice was allowed ti cold settle for 48 hours and then clean racked off the solids. Fermentation was initiated with Zymaflore X5, a yeast known to enhance expression of grapefruit, passion fruit and lychee. This wine is 100% fermented in stainless steel with no mL fermentation, resulting in a clean, crisp, fresh Sauvignon Blanc
