With a name meaning “out of” in Latin, EX speaks to our focus on expressing the personality and characteristics of our Certified Sustainable (SIP) estate vineyard. We harvest grapes at two different ripeness levels and then blend toa portion of each lot gether to create a wine that encapsulates the best qualities of each lot. This Sauvignon Blanc is bright and refreshing with pronounced white grapefruit and crisp acidity.
Our Estate San Saba Vineyard is sheltered in a nook just below the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, roughly 25 miles southeast of the town of Monterey. Our climate is heavily influenced by the morning fog and afternoon winds from the nearby Pacific Ocean. This is a cool site with little rainfall and one of the longest growing seasons in the world. Our unusual climate allows us to produce ripe, concentrated wines of exceptional balance.
Grapes are harvested at two different ripeness levels and two separate lots of wine are made. Then, a portion of each lot is blended together to create a wine that encapsulates the best qualities of each lot. This extra step allows us to create a wine that shows the complete spectrum of flavors available from the grape.
