Aromas of jasmine and orange blossom open our 2017 Estate Sauvignon Blanc. On the palate, light and refreshing lemon-lime citrus notes merge with undertones of honeydew melon adding to the floral aromas and crispy fruit flavors. These intense bright notes are balanced by a soft texture from sur-lie aging, leaving you with a mouth-watering finish.
Certified Lodi Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing
The Jahant Vineyard is located in the Lodi Appellation where the cool nights keep the acidity just right for a balanced wine. Each year we have a consistent quality in our “Musqué Clone” and are pleased with the unique fruit flavors that come from the vineyard.
The 2017 growing season marked the end of the drought with heavy winter rainfall that continued into the spring. Due to the rain, timely vineyard practices were crucial and we adapted our cultural techniques to maintain vine balance. Heat spikes during late August to mid-September required close attention to irrigation to ensure vine health. With the given weather, our winegrapes developed the required sugars, but full flavor maturation delayed our harvest. The wait was worth it and the outcome was a vintage that boasts bright and fresh whites with ideal levels of acidity and red wines that are showing good intensity and concentration.
