2021 Little Sister Sauvignon Blanc
267 cases produced
The 2021 Little Sister Sauvignon Blanc is French-style, modeled after a crisp, but rich Sancerre. It leads with the characteristic earthy nose of Sancerre: notes of lemon and floral tones complemented by a touch of sea breeze with the hint of cat-pee. The feral nose gives way to classic neutral citrus notes on the palate, full and flavorful. 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 salinity on 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.
