The fruit is sourced from two vineyards in Bennett Valley: Frostwatch and Denmark Street; The vineyard work ensures that the fruit will not be have excessive pyrazines while the meticulous work in the cellar ensures that the wine will be without those reductive passion fruit / grapefruit flavors. I love wines with great energy and texture, and wines that express the varietal characteristics of the grape(s) and the grapes' respective terroir.

In order to maintain brightness and freshness, Pied à Terre Sauvignon Blanc does not undergo malolactic fermentation — Given that, the wine is fermented and subsequently aged in 2-, 3-, and 4-year-old, used French barrels for 7 months to augment the wine's texture and complement the wine's acidity (full disclosure: 10 percent of the barrels are new). In the end, I am proud to say that PAT accomplished its goal: I love drinking my Sauvignon Blanc. I hope you will, too.

Tasting Notes: An enticing, restrained aroma when initially opened, giving way to an ethereal and exotic mix of fennel, pineapple, quince. Light and fresh!
