This 100% Musque clone Sauvignon Blanc bottling hails from Griva Vineyard in Monterey's Arroyo Seco appellation. With open exposure to the cold, deep waters of Monterey Bay, the property is found in an ancient, dried river channel and features meager topsoil comprised of granite cobblestone beds. Replete with acidity, the bouquet displays aromas of grapefruit, melon, lemon blossom and minerals. 

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
All of the vineyard soils are Arroyo Seco Loam that contain more sand, gravel, and large stones when compared to elsewhere in the AVA, especially in the blocks nearest the river. The Franscioni & Griva family, who have farmed on the Central Coast since 1868, purchased what is currently F&G Vineyard, LLC. in 1905.
Production Notes
Whole cluster pressed in mid-October. Fermented for 24 days in a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral french oak barrels. Where the wine continued to age for 4 months prior to bottling in March 2022.
Winemaker Notes
Translucent gold hue gives way to aromas of tarragon, fresh cut peach and wild orchard grass. A slightly rich and waxy texture helps balance flavors of early season citrus, English thyme and flinty minerality. Finishes fresh and bright. - Winemaker Cory Waller
