Perfectly balanced grapefruit and melon aromas and flavors are accented by lime and mango. A round mid-palate is followed by a vibrant, crisp, lingering finish.

The fruit for this wine comes from Honig's sustainably farmed vineyard in Rutherford, as well as other nearby vineyards.

The Sauvignon blanc is processed using two different methods. To preserve the delicate tropical fruit flavors, a portion of the fruit goes directly into the press as whole clusters. The remaining fruit is de-stemmed and left in contact with the skins for several hours before pressing, enhancing the grapefruit/citrus components. All of the juice is fermented cold (55 degrees F) in stainless steel tanks.

Aged on light lees for 3 months: 44% in large oak casks (neutral wood), 56% in stainless steel tanks
