Winemaker's Notes

Our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc, En Cigare is named after the cigar-shaped oak barrels in which it is fermented and aged. The larger size and cigar shape of these barrels enhance the contact with the lees, lending richness and concentration. Our En Cigare displays notes of grapefruit, lime, lemongrass, and lime zest, with a crisp green apple bite. This wine has a taut, tactile mouthfeel from the interplay of the barrels, and the natural tannin present in Sauvignon Blanc.
