Dragonette Cellars 2021 Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc is one of the great white wine grapes of the world, and Happy Canyon, at the eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley, is quickly becoming renowned as one of the very top terroirs for the grape in the U.S. Happy Canyon’s unique soils (marine, sand and serpentinite) and climate (warm to hot summer days and cool to cold evenings) promote full phenolic ripeness in the grapes, while still retaining critical acidity. These grapes are natural partners for barrel fermentation and aging, which we employ almost exclusively. This represents an appellation blend of vineyards and lots we feel express the characteristics of Happy Canyon.
