2018 Round Pond
Within this Rutherford neighborhood of the elite, brother-sister duo, Miles and Ryan MacDonnell are the second generation of family members who have continued to transcend and elevate Round Pond’s high-end style of wines. Winemaking is under the direction of Thomas Rivers Brown. There are 362-acres of vineyards planted on three distinct alluvial fans along with gardens and olive orchards used to produce artisan foods.
The Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc is a hybrid between a New World and Old World style white. Lemon zest and a hint of gooseberry aromas pull you into a succulent layer of white peach and candied citrus flavors. A vein of minerality and lively acidity adds to its charm and personality. It finishes pure and long.
