2019 Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma Valley
The name Magnolia Lane pays tribute to the lane of magnificent century-old Magnolia trees that border the entrance to the Kunde Estate. Crisply-styled, this refreshing wine is chock full of bright citrus aromas and finishes with lively notes of lemon and lime on the palate.
The 2019 harvest was a long and slow one, which ultimately gave us beautiful, mature fruit with excellent flavor development. We chose to craft 100% of the Sauvignon Blanc in stainless steel, which we fermented at 54°, in order to lengthen the fermentation time and protect the wonderful aromatic esters. The wine completed its fermentation and aging in stainless steel and was bottled in January 2020.
