At Lasseter Family Winery, we devote ourselves to creating unique and distinctive wine blends. The blending process is mercurial, each vintage requiring different proportions of wines to create continuity of style. The French phrase "zut alors", means, "shucks"! our exact sentiment when we realize that small lots of exceptional wine are available after our blending process is complete. These wines are are simply too delicious not to share with friends. Blending two clones of Sauvignon Blanc, Clone Musque and Clone 1, gives this wine a crisp texture and layers of flavor. The Sauvignon Blanc Clone Musque brings aromas of tropical fruit and melon with a supple texture on the palate, while the Sauvignon Blanc Clone 1 provides citrus notes and zesty acidity. Made in Classic European style, the wine was barrel fermented; aged ten months sur lie with frequent battonage.
