Save $2.00 (5%)
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Our 2019 has aromas of pineapple, tangerine, honeydew melon, yellow apple, peach blossom, lime, white flowers, and cantaloupe. The wine has flavors of pear, lemon, lime zest, orange peel, cream soda, toasted nuts, citrus, lemon meringue, and grapefruit. There is a touch of minerality in the palate, but the wine has a mid palate that is rounded and a touch creamy, but it finishes with a tangy citrus like acidity. The barrel fermentations add texture, density, and viscosity to the mid palate of the wine. The stainless-steel fermentations preserve the natural Sauvignon Blanc aromatics and the acidity and crispness of the wine. Sourcing the fruit from six different sub appellations of Napa Valley brings a huge level of diverse flavors and aromas to this wine. Sauvignon blanc from Pope Valley and Howell Mountain have more tropical fruit flavors, while fruit from Oakville and Oak Knoll have flavors of grapefruit, citrus, and green apple. The grapes we brought in from St. Helena and Rutherford tend to bring the yellow apple, lemon meringue, and cantaloupe aromas and flavors to the final blend.
