Grapes for this Seaglass Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from the Los Alamos Vineyard in Santa Barbara. The vineyard dates back to the early days of Santa Barbara viticulture. Located just 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara County, parallel to the region’s unusual east-west coastal range, whose valleys usher wind and fog across the vines each day. Perhaps most notable for its soil, Los Alamos is comprised almost entirely of sand. The soil heats up quickly, initiating bud beak earlier than neighboring sites and affording the grapes more time to develop their signature concentrated flavors. A cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks allowed the wine’s delicate varietal flavors and crisp acidity to flourish. They chose not to employ malolactic fermentation before bottling the wine, which preserved its hallmark freshness. This wine has long list of accolades. It won "Best of Class" scoring 95 points in the California State Fair Wine Competition, and its a 94 point Platinum Award winner in the 2017 Sommelier Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition, Gold Medal in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, a Gold Medal in the Monterey Wine Competition, a Gold Medal in the Los Angeles Wine Competition 90 points from the Beverage Testing Institue and 93 points from Wine Review online who said "I've always liked Santa Barbara area Sauvignon Blanc. It tends toward the center of the wide spectrum of possible aroma and flavor profiles of the variety, and usually ends up a bit more complex than its toward-the-fringe competitors. This shows lots of character -- lemon, lime, granite, melon, faint grass and a touch of grapefruit, nicely balanced with one another. Easy to find, easy to like."
