2019 Little Sister Sauvignon Blanc
Double Gold 95 Pt
Little Sister to our Three Sons
The 2019 Little Sister Sauvignon Blanc is French style, modeled after a crisp, but rich Sancerre. It has classic neutral citrus notes, with a floral nose that hints of dandelions and a sea breeze with their earthy complements. The delivery yields bright acidity for those warm days and light dishes, offering a mid-palate of flinty minerality, a hint of tart pineapple, passion fruit, and salinityon the back palate. The finish is crisp, long and lingering, for which Halleck Vineyard wines are noted.
This wine was fermented in steel tanks and 20% of the total spent three weeks in neutral oak. There was no malolactic fermentation. After fermentation, all wine was tank aged until bottling.
