Tasting notes


Estate grown, whole cluster cold fermentation, aged in tanks, unoaked.

A pale-yellow blend with light tropical fruit and spicy aromas.  A dry light-bodied wine with balanced acidity, a refreshing wine.

Production notes


The grapes for this Sauvignon Blanc come from three different blocks at Boxwood Estate vineyards.  2019 was an excellent vintage, dominated by warm sunny weather.  These grapes were hand-picked from August 30th through September 4th.  They were delivered straight to the winery where they were chilled, whole-cluster pressed directly to stainless-steel tanks and the juice settled.  Fruit from different vineyard blocks and also different clones were fermented separately to explore what each had to offer.  To capture the natural aromas of the grapes and to retain its fresh flavors, all wine lots were fermented cool, at 53-55°F.  The wine was then aged in tank on the lees to accentuate the richness in the mid-palate which achieves a balance with the natural acidity of the wine.  Sauvignon Gris is a complimentary blender for Sauvignon Blanc, often used as such in Bordeaux, as it brings a richness and fullness to the palate to work with the acidity and to meld with the aromas of the Sauvignon Blanc.

Pairing with Food

Seafood of any kind will be delicious, raw oysters being our favorite. We also love to balance heavy, creamy, or cheese sauces with Sauvignon Blanc’s bright acidity.

  • Savory Mushroom and Parmesan Palmiers
  • Duchess Potatoes
  • Spanakopita

"The structure, however, is easily the best feature here, the acidity lifting the fruit and creating some tension on the Finish. Transparent and wonderfully fresh...this adds a reasonable concentration to match the nice structure. That makes it a winner this is ageing gracefully."
