Why You'll Love It

Our 2017 Mitsuko's Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is crystal clear and pale lemon yellow in color with expressive aromas of citrus, cut hay and touch of jasmine. On the palate the acid is focused, keeping the palate crisp and refreshing. Flavors such as early season pears, Gravenstein apples and Meyer lemon shine through alongside floral notes of apple blossom.

Estate-Grown Grapes

Mitsuko’s Vineyard, located in the cool Carneros region, has proven over the years to have abundance of ideal sites for Sauvignon Blanc. Purchased by Clos Pegase as bare land in 1989, the winery has continued to refine the vineyard's plantings in order to maximize the site's potential, and subsequently, the Clos Pegase Sauvignon Blanc continues to evolve each year.

Winemaker Notes

Picked and sorted in the vineyard, the grapes were destemmed and pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery, whilst they were still cool from the morning fog. To preserve the fresh aromatics, the juice was allowed to clarify overnight and then racked off the heavy lees and sent to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. A long cool fermentation took place lasting around three weeks. The wine was then aged sur lie in tank for a further four months before a light filtration and bottling.
