2015 Sauvignon Blanc, Asbill Valley, Lake County

  • 89 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Aromas of Meyer lemon and soft pink grapefruit lead to fruity flavors of passion fruit, Mandarin orange and pear, with a clean and crisp acidity on the finish.

Vineyard: The grapes for this vintage were sourced from three different vineyards in Lake County. We harvested 78% of the grapes in Elk Mountain Vineyard at a fairly low Brix (sugar) level, which provided the steely backbone and crisp acidity of the wine. 13% of the grapes were harvested in Luchsinger Vineyard at a ripe 25 Brix, and the grapes had seen plenty of sunshine throughout the season. This brought a lush, tropical quality to the blend. The remaining nine percent of the blend was harvested in Michael’s Vineyard on Six Sigma Ranch, on gently sloping hills with a complex mix of soils and aspects.

Winemaking: The grapes were pressed with minimal oxygen contact, and the resulting juice was cold-settled for 36 hours before being racked. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at low temperature. The wine was kept on its lees until a light fining and filtration was carried out to prepare it for bottling. Three percent of the wine was aged in a second-use barrel.

Food Pairing: Pairs well with seafood, poultry, grilled vegetables, and salads (think tomatoes, avocado, goat cheese).

Vendor Details

Six Sigma Ranch & Winery

Owners:
Kaj & Else Ahlmann
Founded:
2005
Location:
Lake County, CA

Six Sigma Ranch is 4,300-acre working ranch with nature in mind, integrating small vineyard blocks with the native vegetation, providing corridors for the wildlife. A conservation easement donated to the Golden State Land Conservancy protects for eternity the habitat of deer, bobcat, turkey, wild pig, bear, and other wildlife. We acquired the land in the year of 2000.

Six Sigma Winery was inaugurated on September 28th, 2005, when we processed our first grapes, a beautiful vintage of Tempranillo harvested in Christian’s Diamond Mine Vineyard. We focus on small lot, high quality wines, and every aspect of our winery reflects that, from state-of-the-art equipment to gentle handling and meticulous hand-sorting of the grapes, ensuring that only the best fruit is used in each of our wines.

Winemaking philosophy
We have one simple goal in mind for producing our wines: To share the story of the season, the place, and the people who made them. Our story is in every single bottle of Six Sigma wine. We take a natural approach to winemaking as well as farming. Working with Six Sigma methods allows us to take a hands-off philosophy, as we only manage the parameters that are critical to the quality of our wines. We know, for example, that if we carefully control the time and temperature of our fermentations, then unnatural additives to our wines are unnecessary.

Process
We transport the grapes from the vineyards to the winery using small lugs, so we avoid the bruising and breaking of the skins that can occur in larger harvest bins. The incoming grapes are unloaded on a sorting belt, where we cull clusters that don’t meet the winemaker’s specifications. After sorting, we remove the grape stems in a de-stemmer, and the individual berries are meticulously inspected and sorted on a second sorting belt by a team of half a dozen winery workers. After this final sorting, the grapes are transferred to a stainless steel tank for fermentation. Fermentation takes place under close supervision of the winemaking team, and the temperature of each tank is carefully controlled with heating or cooling as necessary. With this precision, we can fine-tune the style of each wine, showing off its best attributes.

Cave
While our white wines are aged in stainless steel tanks after the fermentation, ours reds are transferred to age in French oak barrels in our small wine cave. Built into a hillside, the cave naturally keeps the wines at an optimal temperature and humidity, allowing them to develop fantastic aromas and mouth-filling texture. We have additional space for barrel storage in an underground barrel cellar that will serve as the foundation for our new hospitality center.
