Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Moaveni Vineyard, Bennett Valley, Sonoma County
Classically dry, Carica 2018 Sauvignon Blanc offers an intense and satisfying taste experience. With a subtle floral aroma, this single vineyard wine brings flavors of pear, apple, and guava. Cool-climate conditions in Sonoma's Bennett Valley pushed harvest to mid-October. The fruit was hand-harvested before dawn, then pressed a whole clusters. The extended, cool fermentation was in two separate lots: 15% in neutral French oak, and the rest in stainless steel. The two lots were blended before bottling, yielding a wine notable for a rounded texture, balanced acidity, and a lingering finish. 188 cases produced.
