This Sauvignon Blanc contributes aromas of citrus, melon, and green apple, with hints of freshly mown grass. The bright fruit fl avors are accentuated by racy acidity and end with a crisp, clean finish"
Ray Einberger, Winemaker.
The 2006 growing season was marked by weather extremes, with near record rainfall in the Columbia Valley during the early spring and record high temperatures in early and mid-summer.
Although a challenging season weather-wise, exceptional sites including the warmer parts of the Horse Heaven Hills and Wahluke Slope saw early ripening and bold fl avors from the high temperatures.
In the cooler growing areas, later ripening prompted good acidity and fl avor in white varietals, as well as good color, pronounced fruit flavors and less aggressive tannins in reds.
