2017 MARGERUM "SYBARITE" HAPPY CANYON SAUVIGNON BLANC
"Sybarite" is Margerum's definitive Santa Barbara County Sauvignon Blanc consisting of a blend of fruit from all of the top Sauvignon Blanc vineyards they work with in the Happy Canyon AVA. By blending these diverse vineyards they get bold expressions of Sauvignon Blanc’s range of flavors. The result is a wine with remarkable complexity, texture, persistence, and length. Raised in stainless steel tanks (82%) and neutral barrels (18%) for nine months with lees stirring, this elegant Sauv Blanc shows great breadth and texture, with aromas and flavors of grapefruit, quince and lemon, creamy midpalate, and underlying flinty minerality that carries through to the finish.
Doug Margerum has been involved in the Santa Barbara food and wine scene for over 35 years. Upon graduating from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1981, his family purchased WINE CASK. In 1994 the WINE CASK became one of 74 restaurants in the world to earn the Wine Spectator Grand Award. Doug sold the WINE CASK in 2007.
Doug launched the Santa Barbara WINE CASK Futures Program in 1984, which elevated the exposure nationally of Santa Barbara Wine Country. From 1986 to 1998, Doug owned VITA NOVA winery with Bob Lindquist (Qupé) and Jim Clendenen (Au Bon Climat). In 2001, Margerum Wine Company began in a tiny 240 square foot cold room behind Brander Vineyards. The philosophy: return wine making to its previous form of production – handcrafted and personal.
Margerum Wine Company produces limited quantities of wines made from grapes grown both our Estate Vineyard and grapes purchased from other top vineyards from in and around Santa Barbara County. The 18 acre Estate Vineyard is planted exclusively to Rhône grape varietals. The acreage is divided between limestone hillsides and gravelly alluvial flatlands along Alamo Pintado Creek. The wines are now made at their state-of-the-art winery located on Industrial Way in Buellton. Margerum carefully selects the vineyards with meticulous attention to detail in all factors influencing the ultimate quality of the wines, including pruning, soil, climate, and farming methods.
