2023 MRW Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting Notes
100% Sauvignon Blanc. A brand new wine in the Mark Ryan lineup, the 2023 Sauvignon Blanc from Quintessence Vineyard on Red Mountain offers a vibrant and expressive take on the varietal. On the nose, notes of citrus zest, ripe white peach, and whiff of freshly cut grass. The palate is bright and refreshing, with a crisp acidity that carries flavors of juicy grapefruit, lemon verbena, and green melon. The cool temperature fermentation preserves the wine's racy, mineral-tinged character, while the portion of new French oak aging lends a pleasing roundness to the mid-palate. The finish is clean and lingering, leaving you eager for the next sip.

Winemaker Notes
The 2023 Mark Ryan sauvignon blanc is sourced from a single block at Quintessence vineyard on Red Mountain. Farmed with meticulous attention to detail, the fruit was harvested by hand on September 2nd and then whole-cluster pressed in the winery. The wine fermented slowly at cool temperatures over a three-week period. This gradual fermentation preserves the delicate aromas and flavors present in white grapes. The wine was not put through malolactic fermentation, resulting in bright, fresh citrus flavors across the palate and great lift in the finish. The wine was aged for six months in a combination of new and used French oak, as well as stainless steel.
