From one of Steven Kent's favorite Livermore Valley vineyards, Ghielmetti, this vintage of Lola is 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Sémillon, the SB picked first off the vineyard; the Sémillon last of the whites. Whole-cluster pressed, it is briny, with a marine-like influence of savory and steely characteristics. Rich, but not too rich, it's freshened by notes of lemon and lime.
