Lieu Dit, Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Ynez Valley 2018
Lieu Dit sources their fruit from three vineyards in Happy Canyon called Grassini, McGinley, and Star Lane. The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc has a gregarious nose of ripe yellow peach, lemongrass, elderflower, stone and lime peel with herbal notes and a tropical fruit core. It's light to medium-bodied with intense citrus fruits and herbal tang, very zesty acidity and a tropical finish. The finished wine is mineral-driven, focused, and racy style that speaks more to Sancerre than to the riper, richer styles typical of California and other warmer climates.
