Sauvignon Blanc, Aperture
98% Sauvignon Blanc/2% Sémillon
This custom barrel-fermentation, adapted from winemaker Jesse Katz’s experience at Haut Brion in Bordeaux, creates a distinct complexity and rich weight on the palate for the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc, that is balanced by the brightly lifted acidity and an enveloping bouquet of tropical fruits and fresh citrus. The precise blend of sémillon adds a hint of minerality, rich lemon notes, and a beautifully polished texture.
Jesse Katz has, in a remarkably short period of time, made himself into one of the most respected wine professionals in California. He was the first winemaker ever to be included in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, a Wine Enthusiast 40 Under 40 Tastemaker, and had been named a Wine Spectator “Rising Star.”
