2012 Sauvignon Blanc
"Classic" and "perfect" are just two accolades being bestowed upon the 2012 Napa Valley growing season and harvest. Textbook conditions saw near-ideal spring bud break, steady flowering, even fruit set, and a lengthy stretch of warm days and cool and often foggy nights during the long summer months. Late and light rains held off until Napa Valley's treasured wine grapes found optimal ripeness, bringing exceptional quality to the crush pad and into the cellar.
In 2012 we sourced Sauvignon Blanc from one distinct vineyard in Yountville. Our Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100% Musque Clone, the most aromatic version of the classic white grape. Bright and crisp for the perfect pairing of fresh summer fare.
Passionfruit, pineapple, lemon curd and orange zest aromas rounded out with grapefruit, honeydew melon and crème brulee. Round and viscous on the palate with marmalade finishing crisp with bright acidity.
