Full description

'Lumiere' - 'The Light' - is a wonderfully bright and elegant white wine from the Laughing Raven vineyard in Alexander Valley.  We whole cluster pressed the fruit to keep it lean, and then fermented it cold with no malolactic fermentation with a light filtration before bottling.  There is no oak on the wine, and the alcohol is low, but it has a rich body from the lees stirring we do in tank.  The result is a clean and sharp sauvignon blanc with big aromas of tropical fruit and white flowers, with flavors of green apple, almond, and citrus fruits.  This is an elegant wine from the cool and austere '16 vintage: its flavors are soft and delicate with nice minerality.  This is perfect wine for summertime fun, fish dinners, veggies, or a nice stinky cheese.
