Resonance is predominantly sourced from a single vineyard and grown in quartz and sandstone soil. We found only one site on the Newton Johnson property that we believed suitable to plant Sauvignon Blanc which could rival other vineyards that we had farmed before. These are usually found on the high slopes where the bedrock has eroded by gravitational force to form this type of soil. We farm this parcel organically, gaining experience for future integration in our approach to farming. Texture is of prime importance in our whites and Semillon, fermented in new oak barrels, provided us with a component that forms the broader framework of the blend. This is a wine where the winemakers get to play with Sauvignon Blanc, pushing the boundaries of the conventional style. Our intention is to produce a wine that is pure, looking past the fruit expression for complexity.

TASTING NOTES
Steely and condensed character. Passion fruit, lemons and white flowers combine with soft spices and bitter grape skin. Powdery texture and the creaminess of Semillon provide some volume. Racy, mineral, with a dry finish.
