Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Mauritson Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc embodies our core philosophy at the winery: Wine is made in the vineyard! There is minimal oak and no malolactic conversion on this wine. It is truly one of the purest expressions of Sauvignon Blanc you will find in California.
Production Notes
Our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is the first vintage we included as part of our new Foudre winemaking program. Fermenting and aging in the 75hL Foudre provides a layer of aromatic complexity and a hint of roundness in the finish. Our Sauvignon Blanc has lush tropical and citrus fruits with nuances of minerality and fresh pine sap. The entry is bright and focused. On the palate, notes of pink grapefruit mingle with flavors of white nectarine, passion fruit and lime zest. The finish is clean and soft with balanced acidity. Enjoy this wine with light appetizers, salads, seafood dishes or on its own on a warm summer evening.
Winemaker Notes
In 2015 we harvested Hardie estate vineyard three separate times. The lots are hand- harvested, whole-cluster pressed and fermented separately to achieve maximum depth and complexity. The warm spring led to an early bud break followed by a cool early summer and ideal conditions during ripening. The 2015 vintage represented one of our earliest and lightest harvests, with our first pick of Sauvignon Blanc occurring on Aug. 20th and the last pick five days later.
