Chalky yellow hue, intense tropical fruit and citrusy toasted nose, Sophisticated grapefruit, lime and green apple flavors. This 100% Barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc has a unique angle of bright acidity yet silky roundness. Its ripe concentrated fruit and progressive creamy toast was made to enjoy now but will mature elegantly with proper cellaring.
Indigené Cellars is a small family winery nestled in the upper Carmel Valley. Proprietor Raymond Smith worked in wine packaging and distribution, and started making wine in order to understand his customers and the business better. Then he was bitten by the winemaking bug and has honed his skills to produce exceptionally fine wines.
His concept is to produce varietals most suited to certain climates often less well-known and using single vineyards and single clones. Aromas of cocoa, cassis and spice combine with citrus lemon, lime and grapefruit flavors produce an elegant, complex wine with great balance.
