Winestyr Review

Fresh, pure, and bright, this Sauvignon Blanc was made with fruit from two estate blocks high up in the Mayacamas mountains which separate Sonoma County from Napa Valley. This wine is bursting with meyer lemon, grapefruit, and a hint of lemongrass. This wine did not undergo any malolactic fermentation and the lees was not stirred meaning this wine is pure, crisp, unadulterated Sauvignon Blanc with laser precision. Pair with lighter dishes or enjoy on its own. A great effort from Viluko Vineyards. 155 cases produced.

What We Love

  • Bright, fresh, and pure
  • Made with estate fruit

This is a wonderful expression of California Sauvignon Blanc that's perfectly ripe and perfectly bright.

Experience

I was introduced to Viluko's wines over small plates and a few glasses of wine at Willi's Wine Bar (fantastic place if you've never been) in Sonoma County. As I listened to the story of the project - the concept, the Estate Vineyards, the winemaker, and the excellence or bust attitude of everyone involved - I knew I had to taste the wines. I can confidently say that Viluko is a winery to watch in the coming years as the first few wines I've tasted from them are superb.

Winery

Viluko Vineyards is a true mountain winery producing intense and complex Cabernet Sauvignon and beautiful Sauvignon Blanc with fruit grown on their Estate Vineyard in the Mayacamas mountains. Acclaimed winemaker Timothy Milos works closely with the Arroyo family whose winemaking legacy began in Chile. The wines are stunning and this new, small-production winery is one to watch in the coming years.
