2020 Laurel Glen 'Blanc Slate' Sauvignon Blanc
Our Blanc Slate Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from Hopkins River Ranch, a Sauvignon Blanc vineyard in Russian River Valley planted in the 1970’s. The old vines produce unusually small, intensely flavored berries. We whole cluster press to preserve maximum freshness and then ferment slowly at low temperature to accentuate the richness of the fruit.
The 2020 vintage has delicate tropical fruit aromas, hints of Meyer lemon zest and delicious minerality. There is a beautiful richness in the mouth offset by a bright, mouthwatering acidicty.
