THE WINES

The vineyards of Parkers Estate are located throughout the many micro climates in Sonoma County. Soil types vary in composition from deep red “Terra Rosa” loams, to weathered volcanic ash. The vines are carefully tended and grown in hedgerows, allowing the late afternoon sun to bathe the grapes in gentle warmth.

WINEMAKING NOTES

A blend of sun exposed and shade grown grapes were selected for the Parkers Estate Sauvignon Blanc. The sun exposed grapes provide nuances of tropical fruit while the shaded clusters display herbal aromas. The grapes were whole-cluster pressed and the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh fruit flavors.
