2016 T Bar T Ranch Sauvignon Blanc
Our T Bar T Ranch estate stretches across the steep and rugged eastern ridge line of the Alexander Valley. The property is an ideal site for farming both Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, as the dynamic hillside terrain ensures intensely complex and concentrated fruit.
|Varietal Composition||100% Sauvignon Blanc|
|Barrel Aging||8 Months in 30% New French Oak|
|Vineyard||T Bar T Ranch|
|Vintage Notes||An unseasonably warm spring brought early bloom and bud break. Temperatures cooled in May causing grape shatter, which resulted in uneven fruit set and reduced an already low crop yield. In reaction, vineyard crews worked even more diligently during verasion thinning to maintain even ripening of the clusters. As a result of the growing conditions, attention to detail in the vineyards and a final pass through optical sorting equipment at the winery, the quality of the vintage is extremely high.|
