Araujo Eisele Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
A mild and exceptionally dry winter led to early bud break, followed by the earliest bloom on record at the end of April. The fruit set was very good and homogenous. While a cool month of
May exposed the region to shattering and set most vineyards on course for very low yields, the vines on the Eisele Vineyard benefited from slow growth to erect well-balanced canopies. With
average production for the region almost half of 2014, the estate yielded only 10% less, showing the strength of the old vines and the remarkable consistency of the terroir. Summer conditions
were similar to 2014. Warm days and nights fostered steady ripening, leading to the earliest-ever harvest for the Sauvignon of Eisele. The fruit was picked between August 13th and August 22nd.
The grapes were certified ‘Organic’ by California Certified Organic Farmers and ‘Biodynamic’ by Demeter.
