2014 Red Mare Wine Sauvignon Blanc 

As the driest year on record in California history, 2014 is a stunner. Bookended by a God sent early spring rain and a 6.0 Earthquake in which we lost over 200 gallons of this lot, it was a reminder to count our blessings. While dry, temperatures were relatively mild, not breaking 100F the entire season. Both are excellent conditions for ripening and concentration of flavors. This was our earliest harvest off the Gamble property, a full 36 days earlier than our 2011 Sauvignon Bland. A well-balanced crop and picture perfect growing season has yielded a wine with concentration of aroma and crisp fruit flavors.

2014 Red Mare Sauvignon Blanc Tasting Notes

 

Delicate fresh floral aromas of lilac and grape flowers are lifted by crisp clean key lime, lemon, linalool, pippin apple, green honeydew melon and a suggestion of fresh hay. In the mouth, it this wine is refreshingly bright and well balanced. The mouthwatering fruit character works together with barrel fermentation in mostly neutral French oak and aging sur-lie for a lively persistent broad finish filled with juicy flavors.
