2019 Stagiaire 'Sufficiently Whelming' Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

'Sav Blanc from Redwood Valley planted in 1944(the oldest in the country? the
world?). Fermented in neutral barrel for a year in Santa Cruz and then another year
on Treasure Island until the yeast gave up working leaving a beautiful balance of fruit,
sweetness, acidity, and oxidation. Reminiscent of some Scheuller wines,
particularly the Pinot Gris, but with a more tropical fruit profile. This wine is really
pretty right now, and I can see it effortlessly sitting amidst great bottles on a
holiday table, but I also feel it will reward a few more years of cellaring. Only one barrel made'
