2013 Melka Mekerra
Proprietary White
Knights Valley

Our third vintage of mountain fruit Sauvignon blanc to be produced from our 2300 foot elevation vineyard in Knights Valley.  Intensely aromatic - exhibiting notes of stone fruits such as white peach, apricot and nectarine as well as exotic flowers, honeyed grapefruit and quince.  The seductive aromatics alone are enough to transport the soul.  The structure is rich but with great acidity which creates a wine with incredible finesse.  The minerality of this wine shines through to the finish.

"This overwhelmingly interesting Sauvignon blanc is like no other on the market and the sole reason is due to the elevation of the vineyard and soil profile."
