TenchSauvignon Blanc 2021- Special Priced 3-Pack
Hallowed ground is exactly what Tench Vineyard is. Located in Oakville where the Vaca Ranch and valley floor converge to form eastern Oakville bench, it is the vineyard that rests alongside the hill just south of Oakville Crossroad. Some wineries lay claim to being ‘neighbors’ of Screaming Eagle but this is the winery that is. Tench has long been considered a Grand Cru vineyard site for wineries fortunate enough to have access to their fruit and in 2017, they began producing their own wine with the help of winemaker Russell Bevan. The property encompasses 42 acres planted to vineyard, with an acre devoted to Sauvignon Blanc. They, along with Screaming Eagle, are the rarity with Sauvignon Blanc planted in eastern Oakville. Their vineyard is planted to two different clones- Clone 1 and Musqué. The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of these two different clones that give it unique complexity and richness. Entirely fermented in stainless steel, it offers up notes of brioche, caramelized citrus, grapefruit pith and a hint of white flowers. It has a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel with balanced acidity.
