- Complex, intense, and focused, this expression of Sauvignon Blanc is unrestrained, a true exhibition of Washington on display. 10 months in barrel with frequent lees stirring to elegantly package the fruit with hefty body and structure. This singular example crafted for the Auction of Washington Wine Private Barrel Auction expresses both richness in texture, ripe citrus and tropical fruit, yet balanced with brightness and minerality. The precision and depth of this wine can only be accomplished through vine age and distinct terroir.
