The 2022 Hayes Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a unique new world approach to a classic old-world style of white wine production. The wine is made of 81% Sauvignon Blanc and 19% Semillon grapes and is hand-picked, and hand sorted to maintain the highest quality product when it hits the crush pad. The wine is allowed minimal skin contact and is aged and fermented at extremely cold temperatures. This technique allows the wine to maintain its crisp natural acidity, as well as preserve the vibrant aromatic characteristics that would traditionally escape during a warm fermentation. The California spin of bright citrus and bold melon characteristics blend well with an old-world mix of fresh cut grass and subtle minerality.

Grigio grape has pinkish-grey skin and yields a clean, easy-drinking wine with aromas of citrus,

California style with crisp acidity, a lower alcohol content and a soft and smooth mouth feel.
