Lieu Dit Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley 2020
Lieu Dit is a partnership of Eric Railsback and Justin Willett, both among a small group of leading young winemakers and restaurateurs in Santa Barbara. They focus on Loire Valley varieties.
This is 100% Sauvignon Blanc sourced from McGinley and Happy Canyon Vineyards. It is aged in neutral barrels and stainless-steel tanks, producing a clean wine with notes of chalk, lime peel, and lemon, with a grassy streak on the finish. Organic and sustainable farming.
VM93: The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is a brilliant, wonderfully expressive wine. White flowers, sage, mint, tobacco leaf and crushed rocks confer energy to a wine that is all about tension and translucent energy. Vineyard sites are McGinley and China Blue.
