Producer tasting notes: "After observing how larger aging vessels drove our red wines toward the reductive pathway in 2014 and 2015, we thought to increase that expression in our whites by increasing our fermentation volume or reducing the available oxygen. We were pleasantly surprised with how well this worked. Sauvignon Blanc can be an incredibly aromatic varietal and some subtle notes of reduction give it great depth and intrigue. This has now become our standard practice for Sauvignon Blanc and provides a roadmap for playing with other varietals." - Ovid Wines
