2020 Stagiaire Sapphires Sauvignon Blanc
Brent has made wine from this vineyard for 4 years now. It is the only site he's worked with every vintage. 'It’s been a joy to begin to understand it, realize I know nothing, and then start the process all over again. The wine always tastes of itself, of the site. Feliz Creek was planted in the 70s in Hopland. Dry farmed, organic, no till. The site is in decline due to phyloxera and other pressures, producing very tense and concentrated fruit. Destemmed and macerated for a week. Gently pressed to stainless for fermentation and then laid to rest in barrel for a year'
