About The Vineyard
Bucher Vineyard is well-known among Pinot Noir and Chardonnay aficionados and used by some of the most highly regarded producers in Northern California.
Farmer John Bucher applies the same care and approach to a small notch of Sauvignon Blanc which has been purchased by Cast wines since 2017 for their flagship Sauvignon Blanc. This vineyard sits in a cool micro-climate allowing for more developed and flavorful fruit.
The grapes were whole cluster pressed and the juice was put into a stainless steel tank to ferment cold at 56º for about 3 weeks. After fermentation, the wine was racked off primary lees and settled until bottling 4 months later.
