Our 2019 Limited Release Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc begins with brilliant aromatics of passion fruit, mango and lemon zest. Flavors of lime, kiwi, and minerality intermingle perfectly on the palate creating a crisp and long finish.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are sourced from two different AVAs of the Napa Valley. Most of the grapes are sourced from Rutherford. The warmer climate in Rutherford contributes to the tropical fruit and melon flavors. The grapes from the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley produce more citrus flavors and bright acidity due to the moderate climate.
The 2019 vintage in Napa Valley was another example of fantastic growing conditions that lead to prime quality grapes. The fruit for this blend was handpicked during the cool, early morning hours. Fruit clusters were gently pressed. The juice was settled for 24 hours and then racked off the solids to a second tank. The wine fermented at cool temperatures for about 5 weeks. The long, cool fermentation retains vibrant aromatics and bright acidity, while the different types of fermentation vessels add complexity and depth to the final blend.
