2020 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Brilliant pale gold in color with fresh, vibrant aromas of grapefruit and tangerine, white peach, tropical mango, kiwi, and a hint of lemon blossom throughout. Opening with a sweet, juicy citrus acidity, the palate is richly weighted, showing layers of grapefruit, pear, lemon meringue, honeydew melon, and a crisp, refreshing lime zest finish.

Vineyard

This wine is produced from grapes grown on our Oakville Estate, as well as from select grower vineyards representing a range of microclimates in Napa Valley. The warmer areas give us Sauvignon Blanc with melon and citrus characteristics in both aroma and flavor. The cooler areas provide fruit with a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness and balances the rich creaminess from sur lie aging. The Semillon is grown on our Oakville Estate, and it contributes roundness and weight to the mouthfeel.

Pairing

The crisp, clean acidity and lush fruit of this Sauvignon Blanc will nicely complement most lighter preparations of fish. But don’t stop there, as this wine will partner well with most shellfish, including raw oysters and sushi. It will also complement white meats and is more than up to the challenge as a match with Asian cuisine, and the bolder spicy curried dishes. You can dress this wine up or dress it down, and it will pair beautifully with summer afternoons, good friends and good conversation.
