2017 Estate Blanc

Calluna’s Estate Blanc comes from our 2.5 acre block of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon planted on the northeast slope of the vineyard.

This is a wine of bright acidity, moderate alcohol and great depth of flavor. These varietals complement each other as the rounder and honey-like tones of the Semillon are a counterpoint to the citrus, mineral and brighter tones of the Sauvignon Blanc. The barrel fermentation and barrel aging further harmonize the wine, giving us a graceful wine which belongs at the table and will potentially age for many years.

“This blends 58% Sauvignon Blanc and 42% Sémillon, from estate-grown grapes at a high-elevation site in the appellation. It is barrel-fermented and aged in neutral French oak. Floral and pretty on the nose, it is stony and steely on the palate, with integrated acidity and nuanced oak. Lushly crafted, it’s deliciously complex.”
