Brander Vineyards

Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Los Olivos District AVA


This is the wine that made Brander Vineyards – a trendsetting Sauvignon Blanc that came to define a region. Made with a majority of estate fruit, the clean and crisp style that’s beloved by so many was crafted by large diurnal shifts and unfussy stainless-steel aging. The results have been consistently lauded since their first vintage in 1977, with the label quickly becoming synonymous with both Brander and the Los Olivos District.


Most of the grapes come from Brander’s Estate vineyard in the Los Olivos District. High diurnal shifts in the area allow sufficient ripening during the day while preserving acidity at night. Brander also purchases fruit from neighboring vineyards, including Mesa Verde, La Presa, and Kick-On


97% Sauvignon Blanc, with small amounts of Pinot Gris, Semillon, Riesling, and Muscat. Hand harvest, destemmed, 30-60 minutes of skin contact. Aged predominantly in stainless steel, with a small amount in neutral French oak for texture (about 5%)

Vintage Note

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

Tasting Note

“Crisp and stony aromas of crushed granite meet with grass on the nose, while the palate offers wet cement, lime-peel and freshly mowed lawn flavors.” Matt Kettmann for Wine Enthusiast, 7/1/2022
