This vintage features fruit from two of Napa Valley’s premiere appellations: Yountville and Calistoga.
The Yountville appellation boasts a rich history, the first vineyards in the Napa Valley were planted by George Yount in the mid-1800s. This is a classic “warm days and cool nights” appellation with sunny afternoons and often foggy mornings. The Yountville AVA is one of the coolest wine regions in Napa Valley, which helps contribute to a long growing season.
This Sauvignon Blanc entices with aromas of ripe peach and apricot with hints of honeysuckle nectar. Bright flavors of lemon zest and nectarine are complemented by a rich & savory mouth feel. The frequent lees stirring and helps balance out the natural acidity of the Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was aged in a combination of once-used French oak and stainless steel barrels and is a blend comprised of 100% Sauvignon Blanc (50% Sauvignon Blanc & 50% Musque clones).
