2017 Underground Series Sauvignon Blanc

2017 Underground Series Sauvignon Blanc

The wine is made from 1.5 tons of 2017 Sauvignon Blanc grape that was destemmed, then hand bucketed into the underground tanks, sealed up and buried completely and allowed to ferment using wild yeast for 7 months through the winter months, then dug up in May after the ground thawed out. The wine and skins was dug out by hand (with lots of student help!) and allowed to drain through a traditional vertical basket press. We used only the free run wine which was the most delicate/highest quality. We then racked twice to clarify and hand bottled the wine unfiltered, with no preservatives or other additives including SO2 - a truly natural wine.

This is not your typical Sauvignon Blanc: the wine appears deep gold in the glass with complex aromas of ripe apple and jackfruit, dried chamomile, turned earth, honey and juniper. The palate offers dry, fine tannins and a fresh acidity.
