Late Harvest Shahpar
2013 Signature Sauvignon Blanc, Sage Vineyard
Our high altitude Sage Vineyard atop Mount Veeder has become a trusted source for our Signature Sauvignon Blanc. Nestled in a cool pocket that enjoys moderate yet consistent sun exposure, this three-acre block is profoundly influenced by cool breezes of the San Pablo Bay.
Each year the Sauvignon Blanc grapes are gradually coaxed to ripeness, endowing this classic Bordeaux varietal with crisp purity, expressive fruit and refined elegance.
Vivid and captivating notes of fresh orange peel, tangerine and kumquat define the impressive aromatics of our 2013 Signature Sauvignon Blanc, with softer hints of kiwi and honeydew melon playing a supporting role. The wine fills the mouth with piercing intensity, and a flinty note stands out among rounder flavors of lemon custard and guava.
