Sauvignon Blanc 2018
It’s all about the Limestone! The great Sauvignon Blanc vineyards of the Loire Valley lie on white rock, so we decided to plant an experimental 2 acre block on our Limestone outcropping. After selling the crop for a few vintages, Stolpman bottled its first Sauvignon Blanc from the 2008 vintage. We fell in love with the wine and have since planted 8 more acres. We take great pride in treating our Sauvignon Blanc like every other varietal in the vineyard. We withhold irrigation to ensure concentration of flavor and interesting textures. 2 of the 10 acres are own-rooted high density vineyards, and these low yielding vineyards grant richer texture and heightened complexity to the overall cuvee. This portion is aged entirely in neutral oak to round out the intense angularity.
