2019 axr sauvignon blanc
Jean Hoefliger’s early winemaking experience took him to esteemed estates of Bordeaux, crafting soft and round expressions of the Sauvignon Blanc grape through barrel fermentation. The AXR Sauvignon Blanc blends the old winemaking style of Bordeaux with the complexity and rule-bending spirit of the Napa Valley, aging 50% in stainless steel and 50% in French Oak barrels to add additional complexity to the versatile grape.
