We’re off to the races! On Sept. 1, we harvested 5.5 tons of fruit from Mello Vineyard in Yountville — half Sauvignon Blanc, and half Sauvignon Musque.
This beautiful fruit was pressed off the next day after extended skin contact, then started fermentation in two stainless steel tanks with a few different yeasts. They’re now holding strong between 50-55 degrees, bubbling away slowly in the tanks to maintain their fruity, crisp acid balance. Stay tuned for the finished product, and to hold you over until then…get your fill of the 2015 Two Old Dogs Sauvignon Blanc while it lasts!
