Sauvignon Blanc vineyards throughout California—and especially cool-climate sites in Monterey County—delivered the variety’s classic profile of fresh fruit character and bright acidity in our inaugural 1000 Stories Sauvignon Blanc. The wine includes a touch of Viognier, which lends additional complexity to the wine, without overshadowing the vibrant character of the star varietal.
The wine was fermented in stainless steel and saw no oak contact to preserve its hallmark freshness. A small portion was fermented in concrete eggs, rounding out the mouthfeel and imparting a touch of minerality in the glass. Our 2022 Sauvignon Blanc balances stone fruit notes of white nectarine with the juicy citrus character of pomelo. Hints of fresh-cut grass are underscored by a backbone of minerality. The finish is crisp and bright, with excellent acidity.
