Upchurch Vineyard Southwest Facing Sauvignon Blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc from Boushey Vineyard
Aged 18 months on the lees in cement eggs
Cases produced: 200
This single plot of Sauvignon Blanc is from Dick Boushey’s County line road Vineyard, which Chris and Dick collaborated on in 2001. Revisiting old world techniques and combining them with modern winemaking has encouraged us to ferment and age our Sauvignon Blanc “Sur Lie” in cement egg-shaped tanks for 18 months. This method has resulted in a very complex and delicious wine, unlike any other. Upchurch Vineyard is the first New World winery to release a Sauvignon Blanc made in this style.
