2022 Chemistry Sauvignon Blanc

TASTING NOTES FROM WINEMAKER, KARL WEICHOLD
The nose opens with concentrated notes of bright starfruit and wet grass. The palate is electric with citrus vibrancy and ample juiciness that rounds out with flavors of lime rind into wet slate. This Sauvignon Blanc is an absolute marvel of a warm weather refresher. Enjoy this bottle chilled, accompanied by good friends next to the lake.
The 2022 growing season was full of surprises, which pushed us to explore new regions that delivered delicious, age-worthy wines with balance and vibrancy. The vintage kicked off with a cold and wet spring that turned worrisome when an unusually late-season freeze event impacted lower-elevation plantings throughout the region that were already experiencing bud break. Fortunately, we leveraged decades of winemaking experience and relationships throughout the Pacific Northwest to find a quality fruit source in our time of need. Grower partners helped us identify vineyard sites in the Columbia Valley with conditions akin to Willamette Valley, which resulted in balanced, elegant fruit with concentrated flavors.
