About Seaglass 2021 Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Barbara
Los Alamos Vineyard rests 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.
Tasting Panel Magazine scored this 90 points saying “Stark, clean, “glassy” mouthfeel, with baked pear and honeysuckle, which is also its lovely perfume. Salty minerality accents a mouthwatering effect on the bright tropical fruit finish.”
Wine Enthusiast Magazine gave this a Best Buy and a score of 89 points saying "Red apple and cut-grass aromas lead the nose on this bottling. The palate offers more grass along with ripe green melon and bell-pepper flavors atop a soft texture."
