Description

We special ordered Attems signature Cicinis at an exclusive VIP trade tasting in San Francisco 7 months ago.  It has finally arrived!  Very tightly spaced, low yielding Sauvignon Blanc from a steep 2 hectare hillside of 50 million year old raised sandstone ocean bed. Hand picked.  Whole pressed clusters.  Macerated and fermented for 20 days in a combination of cement age (50%) and used (25%) and new French oak(25%).  Then aged for 8 months in the same vessels before blending and bottling.  Rested an additional 3 months in bottle.  The results are wonderful springtime aromas!  Beautiful delineated botanics; fresh dewy grass and baby herbs, grapefruit, lime zest.  Intense with great purity and transparency.  Vivid, fresh cleansing acidity.  Very limited!  Excellent vintage!  Only 14 six packs for USA.
