Eisele Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Calistoga – 750ml

Eisele Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Calistoga - K. Laz Wine Collection

A mild and fairly dry winter very similar to 2015 led to early bud break. Heavy rains in March, however, led the vintage on a most favorable path, allowing development of a generous canopy. While the bloom was delayed 8 to 10 days, identical climatic demand as in 2015 ensured a good fruit set. Mild July weather was also auspicious; it led to fast and homogeneous veraison across the ranch. Continuing amiable weather allowed a gentle ripening of the Sauvignon Blanc though warm days and cool nights.  These very favorable conditions enhanced the nuances within our three plots bringing complexity and intensity to the final blend. The fruit was picked between August 18th and September 7th in ideal conditions, allowing us to capture optimal fruit expression in each plot. ““At first, the nose expresses varietal notes of boxtree and fresh cut grass, then opens with intense tropical fruit, white peach, Meyer lemons zest and fresh notes of white musk. The palate is round and creamy. Tension and minerality carry through the lingering finish. A superb vintage for Sauvignon Blanc.”fruit, white peach, Meyer lemons zest and fresh notes of white musk.
