2020 CADE Estate Sauvignon Blanc, Oakville

Varietals: 43% Sauvignon Blanc, 42% Sauvignon Blanc Musqué Clone, 14% Semillon, 1% Viognier
Fermentation & Élevage: The juice was fermented in a combination of 23% new French Oak barrels, 30% in concrete eggs, and the balance in stainless steel drums. We have five concrete eggs specifically for the five varieties/clones planted on the Estate. All five concrete eggs were incorporated into this blend. In addition, the Sauvignon Musqué was fermented in stainless steel drums and the Clone 1 Sauvignon Blanc in barrels. This combination of French oak and concrete gives the wine a purity of aroma and a textural viscosity on the palate. The wine was aged sur lie for six months, then racked and blended in January. The blended wine was then placed back in stainless steel to finish maturation before bottling. Malolactic fermentation was blocked.
