Kingston Family Vineyards Cariblanco Sauvignon Blanc 2017 (750ml)

Kingston Family Vineyards specializes in small production Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Sauvignon Blanc from hillside vineyards located in the far western reaches of the Casablanca Valley. First planted in 1998, the vineyards occupy 200 acres on a northern facing hillside within the greater Kingston Family estate. The soil is predominately red clay loam with decomposed granite, and it has excellent drainage and low fertility; several of the most promising selections of Pinot Noir and Syrah are planted on their own roots. Kingston Family Vineyards combines Californian knowledge of modern vineyard design and winemaking with a traditional, artisanal approach in order to produce the finest wine possible, with Amael Orrego as head winemaker and Byron Kosuge as consulting winemaker.

The subtle 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Cariblanco reminded me more of a wine from Sancerre than anything from New Zealand, with moderate acidity and a tasty saltiness, with moderate alcohol and good grip and citrus and white fruit aromas and flavors, with contained herbal aromas. Remarkably fresh for one of the warmest years in Casablanca. 6,384 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2017.

There was a change in winemaker, and they are in their third year of transition to organic viticulture, while at the same time, the profile of the wines has changed to fresher wines with lower alcohol and less oak. This could very well be a new project from the 2017 vintage onward. They sell lots of grapes they have 140 hectares in Casablanca and are considered to be one of the best grape producers and only bottle some 60,000 bottles per year.
