VARIETAL. 100% Sauvignon Blanc

VINEYARD.
Cedar Lane Vineyard, Arroyo Seco.

WINEMAKING. Cultivated in the rocky soils of Arroyo Seco, these grapes were hand-picked at dawn and were still cold when they arrived at the Picchetti crush pad. The clusters were carefully placed into our small bladder press, and the free run juice transferred directly to a stainless steel tank for an extended 33-day fermentation and 6-months of aging. We avoided secondary malolactic fermentation, preserving the wine's clean, crisp texture, but the lees were stirred weekly to benefit its aromatic attributes.

TASTING
Aroma: Elegantly refined nose with penetrating tropical aromas, white florals and a touch of lime zest.
Palate:
Flavors of pineapple, lychee and star fruit form an intense and concentrated core, and the mouthfeel is thirst-quenching dry with a fine textual line that lends vitality to the wine. Pure, focused and laced with complex minerality.

FOOD PAIRING. Enjoy this delicate wine with Japanese cuisine such as soba noodles, shabu shabu, or sushi. It is delightful with petrale sole, oysters or a goat cheese tart as well as an Indian chicken tikka masala
