We enjoyed a fantastic growing season in 2016 that offered warm, even temperatures during the day and cool summer nights. Wonderful sun exposure on the vine canopies and a lack of rain developed beautifully ripe fruit with crisp acidity. We chose to craft 100% of the blend in stainless steel, which we fermented at 54 degrees in order to extend the fermentation time and protect the wonderful aromatic esters. The wine was aged in stainless steel and bottled in March 2017.
"Magnolia Lane has long been a signature wine for Kunde Family Winery and a favorite among our employees. I recommend drinking this wine with a little chill on it to fully enjoy the bright, crisp acid, beautiful citrus notes, and pleasant flavor that lingers on the palate. Our Sauvignon Blanc is best accompanied by fresh oysters or light cheeses on the patio with friends.”
