2017 Migratus Sauvignon Blanc
" Migratus (Latin): migrātus (m); Gone away,
having been changed. "
The name, Migratus is in recognition of our winemakers time spent learning and evolving as a winemaker both at home, here on the North Fork as well as time spent in Australia, New Zealand, and California.
Migratus is an old world wine style of aging Sauvignon Blanc in neutral oak creating a white wine with body and the structure to age. This is similar in style to a wine named, Claudia from Vavasour where Robin spent 6 months in 2012 learning about Sauvignon Blanc in its broad range of expression.
Here on the North Fork, utilizing fruit from established vineyards in the best years this wine is the culmination of Robins time spent
Home and Away.
