Proper storage for quality white wines is to cellar them on their side at 55 to 60 degrees and chill to 45 to 48 degrees (depending on the varietal) just prior to serving to avoid the development of tartrate crystals.

Tasting Notes
The 2021 Estate Sauvignon Blanc expresses a reverence for the old world that inspired this bottle. The wine is light straw in color and brilliantly clear. The nose begins with flavors of papaya, grapefruit, white peach, and honeysuckle with a touch of oak on the mid-palate. Bright fruit, well-balanced acid, and minerality lead to a round mouthfeel. A lingering finish lasts long after your final sip.
92 POINTS, Owen Bargreen: The 2021 Woodward Canyon ‘Estate’ Sauvignon Blanc which comes from four different clones and two different blocks in their estate vineyard. The wine comes off very fresh with gooseberry, lime zest and a smooth texture. The weight and salty undertones really add to the enjoyment. Drink 2022-2027.
Vineyard Notes
Planted in 1977, 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 Walla Walla Valley Sauvignon Blanc is produced from our Estate grown fruit. The 2021 vintage was a record vintage for heat 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.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve this wine chilled with rich seafood, fresh summer salads, or hard cheeses.
