2018 Jagged Rock Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc - Semillon

2018 Jagged Rock Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc - Semillon

Jagged Rock Vineyard, surrounded by steep rocky cliffs at 1,400 feet elevation, is a remarkable spot. The sparse, sun scorched soils and heat reflecting off the cliffs provides an ideal viticultural environment. Each area of the vineyard has its own unique growing condition, allowing the winemakers to choose specific blocks to get the most out of the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon used to create this refreshing wine.

Production
The 2018 harvest began earlier than anticipated due to above average growing degree days in the spring. Summer arrived with cooler temperatures, encouraging the fruit to develop beautiful acidity and allowing more time for full flavour retention. One of the coolest Septembers on record followed, slowing down the sugar accumulation and allowing the fruit to fully develop phenologically. Harvest concluded on November 8, with the extended season yielding a crop of uniformly ripened fruit with mouthwatering freshness and acidity.
