2017 Five Forks
Winemaker Note: With the 2017 vintage we continue the mission statement of this wine: evolve.
Wine Description: As Sauvignon Blanc and Petit Manseng take center stage, the aromatics become more layered and subtle. The 2017 asks you to lean in and explore the detail. The density of the PM offers a foundation to the crunchy, fresh green character of the Sauvignon Blanc. On the palate the wine has relative density, with lots of acidity to refresh and invigorate. While the flavors are ripe and run the gambit from tropical to stone/orchard fruit to sugar snap peas, there is a mineral undercurrent that lingers as the fruit dissipates. The wine manages intensity with freshness, depth and energy.
Food Pairing: Asian fusion menus where the tropical and citrus fruit complement the complex heat and rich sauces.
