2019 Russian River Selection Sauvignon Blanc

Appellation
Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Pale straw yellow with a slight greenish tint, the appearance of this wine immediately suggests fresh, crisp, vibrant high tones. Lifted aromas of lemon blossom, lime peel, chamomile, poached pear and flint open up into flavors of tart Meyer lemon, grapefruit, quince and a hint of anise. The tingling sensation on the tongue from the tangy acidity, combined with a slight creaminess from extended lees contact, builds into a long, succulent finish.
Vineyard Notes
The Patient Terrier Vineyard is a family-owned property located on Eastside Road, in the heart of Russian River Valley. The 24-acre site is planted to predominantly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but two small acres of Sauvignon Blanc were introduced in 2012. The mixture of clones 1, 23 and 30 offer a beautiful array of varietal aromas, flavors and textures. The site has a volcanic clay, rock and Goldridge Sandy Loam composition with well-drained topsoil, so a moderately vigorous, clay-preferring rootstock was chosen. Owner Greg Conklin’s goal is to produce the fi nest wine grapes possible while remaining a good steward of the land, and farming practices strive to maintain the proper balance between vine growth and fruit development. The ultimate goal is to be able to pick the grapes at optimal ripeness so that the wine possesses varietal character and a true sense of place.
