Grape variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Producer: Lieu Dit

Alcohol content: 13.9%

Origin: Santa Ynez Valley, California, USA

Notes: A combination of both tank and barrel fermentations that are aged in neutral barrels. The fruit for the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from three vineyards in Happy Canyon called Grassini, McGinley, and Star Lane. Varying soils of sand, shale and gravel at Star Lane and heavier clays with larger yellow and red chert, and serpentine rocks at both McGinley and Grassini.

 

Critical acclaim

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A grassy, perfumed and slightly exotic effort, the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc offers up plenty of lime peel, mineral and exotic flowers to go with more richness and texture on the palate. Tank and barrel-fermented and then aged in neutral wood, it’s delicious and a perfect hot summer day white that won’t disappoint. Drink now. (JD)
