In one-quarter new French Oak


Best known for Cabernet, Hartwell planted Sauvignon Blanc close to San Francisco Bay, and this is their inaugural release. It's a great wine, reminiscent of the best of Marlborough. Enormously rich, it's absolutely dry and high in acids, with a flood of gooseberry, grapefruit zest and white peach flavors. One-quarter new French oak adds a brilliant touch of vanilla and smoky buttercream. With this wine, Hartwell joins the Sauvignon Blanc short list in California.
