Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2020 Estate Sauvignon Blanc exudes a new-world typicity yet still express-es a very distinct reverence for the old-world that has inspired this bottle. The wine is light straw in color and brilliantly clear. The nose begins with lively flavors of vanilla soda, lemon, and yellow tropical fruits. The fruit is fresh and balanced with initial minerality, chalk, and blossom water that finishes with a rich texture of pear. Serve this wine chilled with rich seafood or fresh salads with hard cheese.
Vineyard Notes
Established in 1976, Woodward Canyon is the westernmost vineyard in Walla Walla Valley AVA, roughly 15 miles west of Walla Walla Washington. There are 41 vineyard acres planted and several more acres of green belts that support native species such as western juniper, ponderosa pine, western sage-brush, arrowleaf balsamroot, and perennial wildflowers. Ritzville silt loam over fractured basalt, slope 15-18%, 750-850ft elevation. Managed by Woodward Canyon. All grapes are Salmon Safe certified, as is the wine.
Production Notes
This is the seventeenth vintage of Walla Walla Valley Sauvignon Blanc produced from our Estate grown fruit. The 2020 vintage was a warm, dry vintage with lower than normal yields. Four different Sauvignon Blanc clones were hand-harvested, sorted and whole cluster pressed. Settled juice was chilled and cold fermented in stainless steel; this wine did not go through malolactic fermentation. After primary fermentation, the wine was aged in neutral Sirugue French oak for additional complexity and roundness.
