While the Inglenook Estate is perhaps best known for Cabernet Sauvignon, the lower portion
of our Chateau vineyard, known as Tank House, has proven to be an exceptional site
for growing white grape varieties. The sandy-clay loam soils in this area of the Estate have
good water-holding capacity and underlying gravel for drainage, features that are critical
for the development of both Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
Vintage Notes
Winter and spring rainfall was bountiful, totaling nearly 50 inches. The flowering of Sauvignon
Blanc at Inglenook was rapid, if slightly late, with full bloom occurring at the end of May.
High mid-June temperatures put ripening back on track. Final ripening was uniform, and
harvest was rapid, taking place between August 17th and August 30th.
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes
With a pale gold hue, the 2017 Inglenook Sauvignon Blanc opens with fresh, subtle notes of
lemon-lime zest, white peach, lemongrass, and citrus blossoms. A light touch of French oak
adds structure and complexity to this surprisingly full-bodied, vibrant wine, which exhibits
distinct minerality on the palate. The finish is highly aromatic with lingering freshness and
a return of the citrus and white peach notes present on the nose.
