2009 Huge Bear Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage: 2009

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Vibrant straw color with a greenish tinge. The nose features crisp fruit aromas hinting of melon, citrus and white peach; a floral note provides a delicate accent. The flavors are refreshing, bold and focused, and mirror the nose. Balanced acidity is present throughout, building to a crisp and lengthy finish.

Winemaking Techniques: Whole clusters went to press, and the juice was settled overnight, racked off lees to stainless steel tanks, fermented to 4˚ brix, and was allowed to complete fermentation in neutral French oak barrels. The stainless steel fermentation allowed us to preserve varietal expression. The wine was aged in barrel for seven months to gain complexity, richness, and texture.
