Our inaugural vintage of Sauvignon Blanc. 100% Sauvignon Blanc sourced from the McGah Vineyard on the southeastern border of the Rutherford appellation. Despite some ups and downs early in the growing season, a warm and not too hot late summer created nearly perfect harvest conditions in 2019. The wine was aged in 80 gallon stainless steel barrels to promote and develop aromatic purity.
Harvested from twenty-year old vines planted with the To Kalon clone, the block was farmed to yields (less than four tons per acre) typically not seen with Sauvignon Blanc. The result was more consistent ripeness throughout the block which added a unique richness and texture to balance the grapes natural acidity.
Our newest Cabernet Sauvignon release. Sourced from 12 hand picked rows in the Renteria 360 Vineyard in Oakville and crafted by winemaker Kale Anderson. The wine was aged in 100% new French oak for 22 months. This is Kale's first Cabernet effort for Longfellow and a miniscule 125 cases were produced.
