K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Hopkins River Ranch is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley southeast of the town of Windsor. We harvest Sauvignon Blanc from two different blocks of the vineyard. The first pick comes from a 40-year-old block of an unknown clone, some of the oldest Sauv Blanc vines in Sonoma County. The second pick is from a valley floor block nestled between Eastside Rd. and the banks of the Russian River itself. Like the rest of the North Coast, the 2018 harvest was bountiful at Hopkins Ranch. Picking started 3-4 weeks later than it had in recent years. Ripening was slow and we saw full flavor maturity in the grapes with more tropical fruit flavors than the greener grassy notes that Sauvignon Blanc can be known for. As usual, we fermented the two blocks in a combination of older oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged in 2/3 oak and 1/3 stainless for four months before bottling.
