Case of 2019 Mauritson Sauvignon Blanc
Dry Creek Valley
The Mauritson Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc embodies our core philosophy at the winery: Wine is made in the vineyard! This wine sees minimal oak and doesn’t go through malolactic conversion. It is truly one of the purest expressions of Sauvignon Blanc you will find in California. Our 2019 vintage is sourced entirely from Hardie Ranch, the backbone of our beautiful Sauvignon Blanc since its inception. Hardie Ranch is located in the northern part of Dry Creek Valley along the banks of Dry Creek where the soils are gravelly and deep, allowing for great water drainage and root penetration. This vintage was void of extreme weather events, and the ripening period for Sauvignon Blanc allowed for long hang time and nearly perfect harvest selection. For blending, we had grapes from two distinct picks to choose from. Each lot was hand-harvested, whole-cluster pressed and fermented separately to achieve maximum depth and complexity. Due to the light crop that Mother Nature delivered, most of this beautiful Sauvignon Blanc was fermented and aged in one of our 75hL oak foudres, while the residual was fermented and aged in small stainless steel tanks.
