Malibu Coast Sauvignon Blanc
2021 Malibu Coast Sauvignon Blanc, Eds' Vineyard
Our estate is excited to introduce our Sauvignon Blanc from Eds’ Vineyard. This unique wine is beautifully complex. Notes of pineapple, grapefruit and gooseberry on the nose. Hints of fresh green pepper and white flowers join in. On the palate, it has a bright but soft touch, silky and dry. Minerality shows through and the beautiful terroir of Malibu settles as you finish.
We aged this wine in neutral oak vessels after being fermented in a steel tank. This allowed the wine to breath and develop a soft structure and weighted palate. We made this wine in the eyes of the original California Sauvignon Blanc (the Fumé blanc) coined by famed Robert Mondavi. The bright fruit and zest balanced by a soft and smooth finish, makes this the perfect pairing for a day at the beach in Malibu, and a summer salad on the side.
This wine is named after Todd and Heather’s fathers Edward and Edwin, my Grandfathers. Two truly remarkable men with a zest for life. Edward passed away in 2014 but we know he’s smiling down on these wines. We are fortunate to be able to share this wine with Edwin. Depicted on the label is a topographic map of Eds’ Vineyard and its coordinates. This is a constant reminder of my Grandfathers’ love for travel. We hope you enjoy this unique and beautiful wine.
