2022 Modales Hollywood Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Lake Michigan Shore
Winemaker Notes: It has taken a few years to understand Michigan Sauvignon Blanc for us, it’s not New Zealand and it’s not California. With the 2022 vintage, we feel as if we have found our house style. We fermented a portion in stainless steel with our favorite aromatic yeast strain and fermented 1000 liters in neutral puncheons with native yeast to add body and complexity. We feel that this vintage is a more old-school expression of Sauvignon Blanc which shows off notes of mountain herbs, white peach and has great minerality. The wine was rested on lees until an early bottling in late November to preserve the fruit.
