2021 Glassmaker Skin Contact Sauvignon Blanc Mendocino
From Winemaker Jon Walton:
Making of: The grapes were picked at the beginning of September and were partially destemmed, with 50% left as whole clusters. Sealed and left to macerate for 1 week before being foot crushed. They finished fermentation with gentle punch downs every other day till dryness. 6 months of elevage without disturbing. Bottled without fining or filtration, 20 ppm total of SO2 received (10 post-MLF, 10 before bottling).
Personality: “such a laser of lemon pith, white rose, and even some red fruit. An intense purity. I like it with grilled veggies, lots of garlic, halloumi, mussels, clams, and grilled steak w olive oil and oregano!” goes the winemaker’s recommendation.
