2018 Sauvignon Blanc XL

2018 Sauvignon Blanc XL

Regular price $65.00 Sale

Inspired by the great wines crafted in the Loire Valley by Didier Dagueneau, this wines represents the ethos of Standard Deviation. Seeking outlets for experimentation, the “XL” moniker represents the extended barrel aging applied to this Sauvignon Blanc. Utilizing the unique “Cigar Barrel” we aged our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and extra six months to create a wine that redefines how one views this varietal. Rich and round in the mouth, notes of ripe melon interweave with spring peach and Asian pear, all finding harmony in a focused finish that lingers on the pallet.    

Standard Deviation is a small-scale production focused on the purist expression of tiny blocks of Sonoma County’s and Napa Valley’s premier vineyards. This collaboration between Napa Valley’s Josh Peeples and Winemaker Justin Harmon is their opportunity to creatively expand beyond the confines of their other established brands without compromise.
