2017 Josephine Sauvignon Blanc
Our heirloom Sauvignon Blanc is a pure triumph over the labor of love required to produce it. Picked over three passes, and lightly pressed to preserve freshness and fruit aromatics, Josephine is then fermented and aged in:
Six terracotta amphoras,
Two concrete tanks,
Two French oak barrels,
Two acacia barrels,
One small stainless steel tank.
The result: delicate aromas of citrus, guava, and white stone fruit, backed by a core of refined minerality, and crisp acidity.
"This is a Sauvignon Blanc where only the juices with the most verve make the cut. Nuances of lifted white floral tones, creamy roundness, and exquisite minerality on the mid-palate make for our most exciting Josephine Sauvignon Blanc to date."
-Peter Heitz, Winemaker
