Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: America / California / Napa Valley

The Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from top vineyards throughout Napa Valley, including, from south to north, Estate ranches in Carneros, Suscol Springs, Rutherford and Calistoga. The exceptional fruit from these sites produces a rich, complex Sauvignon Blanc that is simultaneously fresh, crisp and zesty. Grapes are harvested during the cool nighttime hours to fully capture their fresh, pure flavors and vibrant acidity. Whole-cluster-pressing of the fruit under anaerobic conditions maximizes varietal intensity while minimizing the extraction of astringent compounds from the skins. Approximately 80% of the juice fermented in stainless steel tanks and 20% in neutral French oak barrels to produce bright, concentrated varietal aromas and flavors. The wine ages five months in neutral French oak barrels before bottling and an additional three months in bottle before release.

tasting note

Surpassingly fresh, vivid aromas of white flowers, ripe melon and citrus fruit introduce rich, zesty flavors of pink grapefruit, melon and guava, leading to a long, crisp finish buoyed by bright acidity and refreshing citrus and mineral tones. Irresistible upon release, this classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc will age gracefully for 3-5 years.
