2016 au Naturel

2016 au Naturel

Sold Out

Produced as always entirely from grapes grown here on our estate, the 2016 au Naturel once again offers the gorgeous mouthfeel, compelling minerality, rich and balanced flavors, and long-term ageability this cuvee is renowned for. With notes of honeysuckle, Meyer lemon, and cantaloupe on the palate, this extraordinary wine (100% Sauvignon Blanc and produced 100% in stainless steel with 24 hours of skin contact for additional depth) finishes with grapefruit and hints of peach.
