Our 2017 vintage is stainless steel fermented at a low temperature, aged on gently stirred lees and bottled without malolactic fermentation. The point of these techniques is to retain the primary aromatics and flavors from our Los Carneros estate and present them in the freshest and unfettered manner. Brimming with bright citrus and tropical fruit, subtle hints of lemongrass, gooseberry and lemon verbena add flavorful depth.

COMMENTARY: In my tasting travels, I have not come across a lot of Carneros Sauvignon Blancs. The 2017 Cuvaison is quite a good effort and makes me want to investigate this category more thoroughly. TASTING NOTES: This wine is well designed. Its aroma and flavors of dried herbs and citrus are subtle and appealing. Pair its fine flavors with panko crusted, pan-fried Dover sole.
