2017 Sauvignon Blanc
The 2017 vintage began with above average rainfall followed by average temperatures that lasted through June. Harvest was a few days later than average due to a heat spike in September. Temperatures became more seasonal throughout October until a frost in some areas of Paso Robles in late October. In spite of difficult conditions, the vintage shows excellent maturity and depth of flavor
The vineyards proximity to the winery is one of the ways we capture aromatics. We open the winery early and pick at night to keep fruit cool. We use a gentle press cycle to extract juice and fill tanks specially designed to limit oxygen exposure. At every step of the process, we try to limit oxidation to create a fresh and aromatic wine.
California’s pristine Central Coast is home to Paso Robles – one of the world’s most exciting wine regions. Rolling terrain, varied soils and climate combine to create exquisite growing conditions for exceptional fruit used to make award winning wine. At Robert Hall, we capture the essence of Paso Robles in every bottle.
