A smoky and intensely mouth-watering Sauvignon Blanc with lovely balance and freshness. Vibrant aromas of melon and white peach.

Winemaker Laurie Hook sent all the fruit directly to the press, to protect the varietal’s delicate aromas and flavors. To maintain the unique qualities each vineyard can display, she fermented the lots separately and employed different techniques to highlight their diverse characteristics. A small portion was aged in seasoned French barrels, to underscore the sweet vanilla and spice components. The majority of the wine was cold-fermented, to preserve the fresh, bright fruit and acidity that this varietal generously offers. A small amount of Semillon was added to the blend, lending mouthfeel and floral notes to the wine.

“Sauvignon Blanc are the first grapes to come in during harvest, so I always look
forward to crafting this wine and exploring the characteristics each of these vineyards can offer. The 2008 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of citrus rind, grapefruit and a slight floral character. This wine is full of ripe citrus and white peach flavors, with a refreshing minerality throughout. The bright citrus flavors carry into the finish, making this a charming and approachable wine from the first sip to the last.” –Winemaker, Laurie Hook
