Winestyr Review

If you're ready for one of the most unique, complex Sauvignon Blancs that I've ever tasted, get on board now. Coming from the incredible Redford Wetle Vineyard, this Sauvignon Blanc was aged 10 months in Burgundy and Stainless barrels lending the wine a harrowing weight, intriguingly clear earthy mid-palate, and ripe citrus fruits on the finish. This is a stunner, plain and simple.

What We Love

  • Very food friendly
  • Unique expression of the grape
  • Single vineyard, micro-production

This is a wine for adventure and exploration of the universe

Determined to make approachable and balanced wines though minimal manipulation, the winemakers have a passion to work with well farmed, terroir-expressive vineyards, many of which are organic and/or Biodynamic, celebrating the varietals the winemakers loves to drink.
