Brander Vineyards

Au Naturel Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Los Olivos District AVA


Au Naturel is made from the finest lots of Brander’s estate vineyards, carefully selected each year by the winemaking team. Attentive and diligent winemaking further define the character of the wine, with only free run juice used and careful lees aging building the rich yet delicate structure of the wine. The wine shows a concentrated and luscious profile, bristling with bright tropical fruit and tempered by a stony backbone.


All the grapes come from the Brand Estate Vineyard, with a rigorous selection process determined each year by the winemaking team. High diurnal shifts in the area allow sufficient ripening during the day while preserving acidity at night.


Hand harvested, stainless steel fermentation with 30-60 minutes of skin contact for texture. Only free run juice is used. The wine subsequently sees 7 months in stainless steel, most of which is spent on the lees. Malolactic fermentation is prevented.

Vintage Note

A high-quality vintage, with a long and cool growing season creating a chiseled and precise product.

Tasting Note

“Cut grass, dark green herbs and yellow apple aromas show on the nose of this bottling. It’s very lean on the palate with a zippy, energetic acidity that cuts right through the cement, crushed stone, and serrano flavors, engaging the palate on all sides.” – Matt Kettmann for Wine Enthusiast, 12/1/2022
