Wine Profile

Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc 

Vintage Notes:

2009 was a very mild growing season with minimal fluctuation in temperature with early ripening varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc.  Due to these so-called perfect growing conditions, the grapes ripened evenly. With the Sauvignon Blanc we were able to bring in grapes with high sugars while still maintaining acidity. This brought a lot of finesse and elegance to our Sauvignon Blanc which is known for its flavors of tropical fruit and minerality.

The soil has a very high clay content that retains a lot of water on the Alpha Omega property which allows for dry farming. We also used a very low temperature during fermentation to preserve the freshness, elegance and fragility of the grape. Due to the low yield year with small berry size, we had very high concentration in the wines. The juice had high sugar, high acid and beautiful concentration.
