Sagemoor 'Without Rehearsal' White Bordeaux Blend 2017

How it began... At the end of August in 2016, Lacey was standing among rare, unclaimed Sauvignon Blanc in our Bacchus Vineyard. A solid amount still dangling on the vine. “The fruit goes to premium wineries so I knew we had something distinctive hanging here, and we had a special winemaker able to receive it. I had to make the call.”

That special winemaker is Ali Mayfield. As 2016 harvest approached, we knew beautiful grapes would remain after fulfilling all winemaker requests, so we brainstormed dream partners for our very first white wine collaboration. Ali, and her great reputation for working with white grapes, was the aspirational “get”. We approached her with the idea to make wine with our grapes before we knew what or when.

And she said yes!

2017 Tasting Notes:

Begins with aromas of citrus, followed by grapefruit and silky mouth filling viscosity, leading to notes of minerality. The Semillon floats across the palette lengthening the finish in a delightful way. This white blend puts Washington Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon in perfect complementary balance.Washington State, Sagemoor Vineyards
