Green Truck Sauvignon Blanc
BODY FEATURES Our Sauvignon Blanc grapes are organically grown and farmed by the Bartolucci Family of Mendocino, a family devoted to organic farming for over a decade. Organic farming requires a commitment to a method of farming that eliminates the use of chemical fertilizers and toxic insecticides in favor of natural practices that protect the health of farm workers, create a thriving wildlife habitat, and result in clean run-off and healthier soils. Even better, these practices result in delicious wine. The grapes are certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers, the most recognized and trusted seal in the organic marketplace.

Fermentation & Aging
The grapes were selectively picked, crushed and delivered directly to the tank press. The juice was gently extracted from the grapes to maximize the fresh fruit and then settled for 48 hours. The juice was then racked to a fermenting tank. Fermentation took place at 55 degrees to further accentuate the bright fruit character of the wine. This wine saw no oak or malolactic fermentation
