2015 Sauvignon Blanc

Aromas of rose petal, white peach and a mineral quality we describe as ‘wet stone’ extend to the full palate.  The wine is luscious, highlighted with distinctive minerality and a firm, refreshing finish.  This Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect complement to fresh oysters and wild Pacific salmon, simply grilled.

Summer White Wine Pick by Ziggy the Wine Gal:

"‪#‎RefreshingWhite‬ – Trione Vineyards and Winery 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, River Road Ranch, Russian River Valley. This fabulous sauv blanc was nothing short of tantalizing and zesty with notes of grapefruit, wildflowers, wet seashells, and young pineapple. This is without a doubt one of the BEST Sauvignon Blancs I’ve ever tasted… and I’ve tasted a lot!"

2015 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc – River Road Ranch

 

The Vintage

Our River Road Ranch is in the heart of the Russian River Valley appellation.  Sauvignon Blanc grapes thrive here in the well-drained gravel and clay loam soils.  We handpicked fruit from fifteen-year-old vines planted with clone #01, a selection with a distinguished history in California.  In 2015, the California drought conditions contributed to an early growing season with mild weather and a relatively light crop.

 

The Wine

We gently pressed the whole bunches and chilled the juice for two-three days, in stainless steel tanks.   Then we fermented the Sauvignon Blanc with a South African yeast strain selected for its aroma enhancing qualities.  Prior to bottling, approximately 50% of the wine aged 4 months in neutral French oak barrels, to integrate flavors and structure.  2,685 cases were bottled.
