Desire Lines Wine Co Kick Ranch Sauvignon Blanc


The grapes for our 2021 Kick Ranch Sauvignon Blanc were crushed by foot in the picking bins before being quickly loaded into the press for pressing. The juice was fermented in a combination of 228L and 300L barrels with a bit of new oak (22%) from the illustrious Stockinger cooperage in Austria, for a touch of floral, sappy oak sweetness. The wine was left on lees for ten months in barrel before bottling in July. Much like our Rieslings, the Sauvignon Blanc from Kick Ranch satisfies my desire for a cool-climate white wine imbued with a stern, zesty architecture into which we can knit lush fruit flavors and saline flourishes. "The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Kick Ranch is bright and effusive. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint, tangerine oil, sage and tomato leaf are all finely delineated. Here, too, I am quite struck by the wine's weight and phenolic intensity. This is a serious wine for the dinner table." - By Antonio Galloni on April 2023 (93 points)
