Introduction: The 2021 Kukeri Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc is coming from Windsor Oak vineyard, located in Russian River Valley AVA. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are coming from the lower block of the vineyard where the cooling effect of the coastal fog is providing perfect growing condition.
Winemaking: The grapes have been harvested at end of August and whole cluster directly pressed in stainless steel tank for settling. Racked and slow fermented for 3 weeks at 59F. Aged on fine lees for 2 months and weekly mixing the lees to build the complexity of the wine. Filtered and bottled at the beginning of December 2021 to keep the freshness in the wine.
Only 60 cases produced.
Tasting Notes: Refreshing and delicious, our 2021 Kukeri Russian River Valley is very well balanced with great structure and texture, on the nose lemon peel zest flavors with notes of grapefruit, white peach and lemongrass which leads into a unique balance of acidity, freshness, and complexity. Long and lingering finish with bright acidity.
Enjoy with Family and Friends!
