Hess Select Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage: 2011
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Appellation: North Coast, California
Analysis: Alcohol: 13.5%  | pH: 3.91  | TA: 0.56 gms / 100ml
Tasting Notes: Hallmark aromas for a New World interpretation of the varietal sing from the glass: gooseberry, lemongrass and guava. By blending Clone 1 with the Musque clone, we achieve flavors with a more tropical tone, including key lime, grapefruit, and kiwi. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and neutral, 5- to 6-year-old French oak barrels. It was not allowed to go through malolactic fermentation in order to retain its crisp acidity.
