Sauvignon Blanc was the variety most in demand from the Pacific Northwest in 2015, with little inventory to speak of. This Bordelais white variety is one of the three hottest selling varieties in the North American wine marketplace (balance represented by Chardonnay and Pinot Gris).
Styles and aromatics offer a broad pastisse from which to choose. This varietal will range from sublime tropical floral aromas and bold fruit at one end, to austerity, minerality, and grassiness on the other. Washingtons meso and micro-climates offer buyers from around the US and the World myriad options.
We have inventories in excess of 50,000 gallons total from 2016. With such a warm, quality vintage with low disease pressures, handled by talented winemakers, these inventories look to be some of the first to expire.
