2019 Sauvignon Blanc, Vogelzang 750ML
Vogelzang is one of the most celebrated Sauvignon Blanc sites in California. We have leased several acres here since 2009, and our long experience here has paid off, as our farming strategies produce singular wines here.
In 2019 the grapes were fermented in 100% French oak barrels and cigars (20% new) and aged for 17 months on the lees before bottling. The resulting wine shows classic Vogelzang character of powerful stone fruit, mango and pineapple flavors, with great concentration and texture, but with a laser like spine of acidity and mineral character. The 2019 will drink well upon release, but should age for 12-18 years on its great underlying material. Drink 2022-2033+.
Jeb Dunnuck gave the wine 97 points, which really is unheard of for Sauvignon Blanc. He said:
“The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Vogelzang Vineyard …just blew me away. More subtle and reserved, its thrilling notes of crushed limes, lemons, sappy flowers, and minerality give way to a medium to full-bodied, deep, layered, multi-dimensional Sauvignon Blanc with tremendous mid-palate depth, bright acidity, and laser-like precision. You could put this in a blind lineup of top Bordeaux Blanc and it would stand toe to toe. Hats off to the team at Dragonette for a commitment to fashioning incredible, age-worthy Sauvignon Blanc that’s as good as anything out there!”
