We source our Sauvignon Blanc throughout Northern California, looking for parcels that deliver both great freshness and a sense of depth. The combination of these elements is a crucial factor for producing the exceptional Sauvignon Blanc for which we strive.
TASTING NOTES | The 2016 growing season was the last of the drought years in California which definitely ended with the deluge of the winter between 2016 and 2017. Harvests were the earliest in memory with many of our Sauvignon Blanc parcels being picked in early August. These conditions produced wines that are full of depth and intensity.
The 2016 Rickshaw Sauvignon Blanc is a nice blend tropical fruit notes framed by a slight savory touch. It opens up with beautiful aromatics of jasmine, white peach, passion fruit, and a slight hint of fresh meadow. Flavors of candied lemon, orchard fruits, mint, sage and the slightest tropical hint of guava on the zippy frame. With great acidity and minerality, this wine begs for repeated gulps.
