2021 History Smith-Cernie Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvignon Blanc contains elegantly restrained aromatics of pear, honeydew melon, and white floral with an undercurrent of minerality. The palate is broad and textural as a result of the extended lees contact. Notes of pear and white peach are tethered to a succulent and satisfying finish.
The 2021 growing season was warmer than average, with a dry heat throughout the summer. In the Columbia Valley, this resulted in the fruit ripening earlier in the season, giving us grapes full of vibrant and focused flavors.
