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 Estate ranches in Carneros, southeastern Napa, Rutherford and Calistoga. The superb fruit from these sites produces a rich, complex Sauvignon Blanc that is simultaneously fresh, crisp and zesty. The wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Sauvignon Musqué, an especially aromatic clone of sauvignon blanc. 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 ferments 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

Vibrant, wonderfully fresh aromas of pink grapefruit, melon and white peach introduce zesty flavors of Meyer lemon, lime, guava, gooseberry and juicy melon. Lively acidity accentuates the wine’s flavor intensity and animates its long, harmonious finish, which features succulent citrus and mineral tones. Delicious now, this classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc will age gracefully for 3-5 years.
