2021 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley

40TH VINTAGE

“Groth produces sought-after Cabernet Sauvignons, but the quality of the winery’s Sauvignon Blancs is just as noteworthy. This bright, juicy white with notes of citrus is beautifully balanced.” 
— Lettie Teague, Wall Street Journal

This vintage of Groth Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is the first wine overseen from ground to glass by Director of Winegrowing Ted Henry, who joined our team in 2021. Sauvignon Blanc has been part of the Groth family of wines since our winery was founded in 1982. Over the past four decades, we’ve honed our skills in the vineyard and the cellar to produce Sauvignon Blanc that is balanced, refreshing and aromatic — just the way we love it.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The wine is bright pale straw in color with lively aromas of fresh apricot, tangerine, mango and freshly zested lime. Mouthwatering acidity mixes with flavors of fresh-cut melon, lemon and more tropical mango. Lime and grapefruit carry the long and juicy finish that leaves you craving another sip.

Accolades

“Distinctive, with lanolin, honeysuckle and litsea oil accents to the ripe peach, citrus and apricot flavors at the core.”

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 seafood and vegetables. It also excels with many Asian cuisines and, of course, sipped on its own right out of a chilled bottle.
