2016 Lexington Wine Co. Alma

Gist Ranch Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mountains AVA

“Our first white wine comes from an acre of white Bordeaux varietals planted at the Gist Ranch Estate.  We have about 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Sauvignon Musque, and 35% Semillon planted at our high elevation site 15 miles from the Pacific.  The wine is fermented and aged for 10 months in 100% French Oak (1/3 new), primarily larger puncheons, hogsheads and ‘cigar’ bbls.  This bottling is a blend comprised of 74% Sauvignon Blanc and 26% Semillon.”
