The Wine: Sapphire, Samphire, & Saturn Returns 2019
Sapphire, Samphire, & Saturn Returns in the words of winemaker Brent Mayeaux is made from "Sauvignon Blanc from Feliz Creek Vineyard in Hopland in Southern Mendocino County. Organic, dry-farmed, no tilling, old vines. Destemmed and macerated for just over a week and aged in neutral oak barrels for almost a year. Gentle tannic structure. Feijoa, guava, pear, and apple tart. California warmth for when COVID has got you down."
