Hartwell Estate 2017 Estate Sauvignon Blanc

The family's Carneros vineyard provides ideal growing conditions for the Sauvignon Musqué clone planted there. This highly aromatic clone is appreciated for its floral and tropical characteristics. The grapes undergo a gentle whole-cluster pressing and are then fermented and aged sur lies in a combination of stainless steel, new and one-year-old French oak barrels and a concrete egg. The final blend is then assembled from these individual lots

Hartwell Vineyards is unique even within the Stags Leap district. Though the entire area is covered in rich volcanic soil, our vineyards are planted on the slope of an actual dormant volcano. Our home sits right on top of the hill at the site where the last eruption happened four million years ago.


Today, steep terrain, rocky soils, and the only granite rock in the Stags Leap District allow us to control the amount of water each vine needs.  The xceptional drainage from the rocky slopes forces vines to conserve their production to just a few tight clusters of small grapes. This forced state of stress produces the most intense fruit, which in turn yields wine of uncommon depth, richness, concentration and longevity.
