2019 Martin Ray Mrs. George Vineyard Dutton Ranch Sauvignon Blanc
We strive to make this cool climate Sauvignon Blanc refreshing and lively with every vintage, while still accentuating the complexity that comes from the Musque clone. Lean and vibrant with zesty layers of citrus complemented by floral aromatics.
Mrs. George Vineyard, Dutton Estate
Grown on the flats of the Green Valley, the vineyard’s excellent exposure, consistently cool temperatures and well-draining soil add up to the perfect trifecta to showcase the unique character of the Musque clone Sauvignon Blanc.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Starting with rain during bloom, 2019 transitioned into a steady, slow to warm spring. Temperate throughout the summer, offering only a couple intermittent heat spikes. Average yields and incredible quality with harvest beginning in early August.
Harvested at low brix. 100% free run with native yeast fermentation. Stainless steel.
Aromas of jasmine, key lime, and Meyer lemon, accented with hints of sweetgrass and almond hulls. Ripe citrus throughout, with touches of guava and subtle chamomile on the finish. Its acidity plays out with clean and concise edges while accenting its plush midpalate and fresh finish.
