    Grape(s): 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    Vineyard: Planted in the 1970s, organically-farmed Hillside Vineyard in Talmage sits right above the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. CCOF certified, the vines are head-trained and planted on loam. Managed and farmed by Humberto Nunez, Hillside has become a cornerstone for Subject to Change. 

    AVA: Mendocino

    Method: The Sauvignon Blanc grapes underwent partial carbonic maceration for 1 week (1/4 of the grapes in the tank were foot-crushed whole clusters, topped with 3/4 uncrushed whole clusters). The grapes were then pressed into a stainless steel tank. 2/3 of the wine got moved to neutral oak barrels for 6-month elévage, while the other 1/3 underwent elévage in a stainless steel tank. After the 6 months, the wine from barrels and tank was homogenized into a stainless tank before bottling. As always, no fining, filtration, or addition of SO2. 

     ABV: 11.5%

    Case Production: 1,376
