2018 Sauvignon Blanc, En Cigare

New Exclusive Release
Winemaker's Notes

As part of our Micro lot series of wines, which embraces research, discovery and experimentation, our En Cigare Sauvignon Blanc explores a Bordeaux expression of this variety. We worked with elongated, thin stave, lightly toasted French oak barrels to provide the richness of lees contact, while enhancing the concentration and age-ability of this wine. The 2018 En Cigare offers a heady bouquet of chrysanthemum, Meyer lemon, melon and lime peel. From the barrel we get an opulent, crème anglaise texture that is given a long finish by the cheerful acidity of our Sauvignon Blanc.
