2022 Jewell Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley


Located in the heart of Russian River Valley, the Dutton family farms this vineyard to perfection. This section of the valley has a diurnal variance of warm days and crisp nights, perfectly situated for a consistent growing season that leads to optimal ripening. This climate aids in the balancing of acidity and lifting tropical aromas in the fruit, and thus, in the finished wine. Once to the winery, a slow, cold fermentation took place over 45 days, allowing the development of aromatics in the wine. Upon completion, the wine was moved to neutral French Oak barrels. We here at Venge are light handed on the usage of French Oak keeping it to 100% used, neutral French oak on our Sauvignon Blanc. Ageing on the lees was employed to further develop refined richness and length of body to the mid-palate, while keeping the wine clean and fresh. The wine opens with a pale hue, ripe white peaches, nectarine, Asian pear, with hints of honeysuckle and jasmine. The entry on the palate is brimming with citrus, stone fruits, a touch of minerality, and a long, layered finish featuring delicious, island ripe pineapple and a touch of savory melon. Mouthwatering and refreshing, this wine provides immediate drinking pleasure.
