2016 Kelly Fleming Sauvignon Blanc
The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is pretty and expressive on the nose, showing notes of candied orange, jasmine flower, mint and marzipan. The palate is soft and billowy on entry and has an incredibly bright, citrusy backbone of acid that supports the wine and lingers into the finish. Primary flavors of lemon cream and lime zest are accented by riper notes of white peach, pear and honey.
In 2016, we introduced fruit from a new vineyard by the name of Kick Ranch into our Sauvignon Blanc blend. This unique site on the western side of Spring Mountain is strongly influenced by the cool marine air moving in from the coast. We find that the bright, zesty characters coming from the Kick Ranch property are a perfect complement to the richer, more honeyed qualities coming from the Sauvignon Musque grapes at the Aetna Springs property. 426 cases produced.
