2016 Tiradora Sauvignon Blanc - Case Special
Tiradora means “sharpshooter” in Spanish, as this is a direct, focused wine. Layered and complex, this Sauvignon Blanc will keep you intrigued with each sip. Aromatics of gooseberry, lemongrass, and white pepper combined with smoky hints of flint and sea salt. Well balanced with bright acid, the wine has tension and verve bringing length and energy, plus a slightly rounder mid-palate which carries delicate richness due to a small addition of Semillon. The wine is fermented in a combination of stainless steel, concrete, and neutral barrels with partial malolactic fermentation. Aged for 6 months before filtration and bottling.
