2010 Vogelzang “Birdsong” Sauvignon Blanc

The Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in neutral Chardonnay Oak for 10 months from harvest to bottling in June of the following year. The vineyard chooses to use wild yeast in the white wines because each yeast carries with its own nuances and flavors. The texture of the wine is increased through this process. The Vogelzang Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is an Estate Wine, taken from the mature, planted in 1998. The grapes in this Sauvignon Blanc are harvested from two different blocks of different clones. It is made up of 75% Sauvignon Blanc 1 and 25% Sauvignon Blanc Musque. The Sauvignon Blanc 1 clone contributes the minerality and the Musque clone the more floral, light tones. The whites do not go through malolactic and are filtered before bottling.

From the winemaker – “The Birdsong Sauvignon Blanc is all about fun. We have some exciting young Sauvignon Blanc vineyard blocks that show great promise and are providing us with fruit offering fresh aromatics of spring flowers, bright citrus, and flinty minerality. We have departed a bit from our traditional winemaking by using some tank fermentations that preserve the youthful fruit and keep the palate light and approachable.”

Enjoy with a crab salad, smoked salmon,  or Oysters Au Gratin. Cheeses such as brie, swiss or gouda.
