2013 Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc
Margerum Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc is from a section of the vineyard that was set aside for the production of this wine. Ideal growing conditions allowed for full flavor and sugar ripeness from exposed bunches, while retaining acid from the shaded bunches. The grapes were hand-picked in perfect condition and then crushed, pressed, and fermented at a very cool temperature for three weeks. The wine has intense varietal aromas, a luscious mouth feel with a clean finish.
It was an early harvest for dry whites. We let this hang for an additional three months during the long cool fall. It was Harvested at 28.9 Brix.
