2022 HALL Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Straw color laced with a green tinge. Fresh and effusive aromas of citrus zest, lemon grass, and delicate white flowers. The palate is energetic and focused, bursting with flavors of lychee, grapefruit and nectarine. Subtle oak notes support the fruit beautifully and bring an added layer of complexity on the palate. Barrel fermentation and aging create a depth and richness on the finish that provides a balanced contrast to the vibrant acidity.
|Varietal Composition||100% Sauvignon Blanc|
|Vintage Notes||Ample winter rain, followed by temperate and dry conditions through March gave us a good start to the vintage. The spring and summer months were consistent and warm, resulting in small but healthy canopies and balanced vines. Labor Day came with a curveball from Mother Nature in the form of a prolonged heat wave that accelerated harvest at many of our vineyard sites, followed immediately by much cooler weather and a bit of rain. This refreshing slow-down allowed the remaining grapes to hang a bit longer, yielding beautifully balanced fruit and polished tannin. Overall, the 2022 vintage is fresh with pure, concentrated flavors.|
