2020 Acumen Mountainside Sauvignon Blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc; 211 cases produced
This tantalizing mountain-grown Sauvignon Blanc leaps from the glass with zesty layers of lemon, grapefruit, green apple, and citrus blossom, as well as hints of aromatic tropical flowers. The lively citrus elements echo on the palate, where they mingle with luxurious notes of pineapple and lychee that linger on the bright, refreshing finish.
2020 Vintage Notes
The overall weather throughout the 2020 growing season was excellent for Sauvignon Blanc. After a dry winter, bud break started early in our vineyards. The temperatures throughout spring and summer were relatively mild, ensuring that the grapes had ample time to develop vibrant, complex flavors and generous textures. Simultaneously, the overall lack of precipitation kept canopy growth in check and produced small clusters with highly concentrated berries. As a result, our wines from the 2020 vintage display excellent structure, compelling aromatics, and lush varietal flavors.
