2020 Tangent Clone 530 Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage outlook

For this exclusive small production wine, we decided to produce a wine solely from our favorite Clone. The highly aromatic Clone 530 is one of the few clones that comes from the original home of Sauvignon Blanc, France’s Loire Valley. We grow it in the Edna Valley with great success. With a lighter crop and small juicy berries, this clone produces a uniquely expressive wine. While managing the grapes in the vineyard is hard work throughout the growing season, once the wine enters the cellars we keep it cool to preserve the varietal characteristics. Winemaking interventions are minimal with the wine being stored in stainless steel tanks to ensure every glass expresses the aromatic intensity of this beloved variety.

With a nose that bursts out of the glass, this Sauvignon Blanc has flavors of tropical fruit, citrus, apple, and juicy passionfruit. The beautiful crisp acidity makes this wine perfect on its own. It is especially fun when paired with light salads and seafood.

The Art of Making Our Wine

Throughout the millenia for which winemaking has existed, the humble grape has always been the star of the show. Its journey from a simple fruit to a complex, beautiful wine, is tastfully shepherded by the winemaker, asserting themself into the natural process while being mindful not to overly interfere with the wonder that is fermentation.
