Sidebar High Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2015

This cuvée of Sidebar Cellars Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from High Valley in Lake County. The Brassfield Sauvignon Blanc vineyard is north of Napa at 1,800 feet above sea-level and is one of the coolest sites in Lake County allowing for prolonged hang-time and excellent acidity. The winemaking consists of whole-cluster fermentation, no malolactic and a mix of stainless steel and oak barrels for fermentation, it’s then aged for two months on lees, in a mix of neutral oak, stainless steel and concrete egg. The resultant wine is almost Loire in style, beautifully textured with a crisp bright finish.
