About This Wine:
From Brassfield Vineyard in High Valley of Lake County, this is a unique vineyard with gravelly-sandy loam soil at 1,800 feet of elevation. It is one of the coolest microclimates in Lake County, allowing for prolonged hangtime and excellent acidity. The vines are a combination of Sauvignon Musque, Clone 530, and Clone 1, between 10 and 15 years old. The grapes were whole-cluster pressed and fermented with native yeast in a mixture of stainless steel and old oak barrels with no ML, then aged sur lie for four months in 60% neutral oak and 40% stainless steel barrels.
“Grown at an elevation of 1,800 feet, our Sauvignon Blanc shows classic varietal character without exaggeration.” –David Ramey



Ratings & Reviews

91 Points #32 Top 100 of 2017 Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Focused and precise, with detailed lemon meringue, orange blossom and lime zest flavors that are intense, fragrant and harmonious on the long, crisp finish. Drink now. 2,198 cases made." –MW (May 2017)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is an outstanding choice for people who appreciate a really crisp and electric white wine. Lean in flavor and light in body, this wine is bright and refreshing to sip, alive with good acidity and light citrus flavors that light up all corners of the mouth." -JG (Mar 2017)

Antonio Galloni:
"
Sidebar's 2015 Sauvignon Blanc High Valley offers good varietal character and nuance, in a rich style that reflects the intensity of the vintage. Stone fruit, chamomile and floral notes are nicely pushed forward. Drink it over the next year or two." (Mar 2017)
