2015 Sauvignon Blanc

As an estate winery, we are always replanting some portion of our vineyard because, if we waited and did it all at once, we wouldn't have any grapes for three years! As we pondered what new grapes we might want to plant, we realized many of us had been enjoying Sauvignon Blanc from regions around the world. We also realized that our climate would be perfect to allow us to craft a fruity and bright version right here in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley

The Vintage

As farmers, Mother Nature keeps us on our toes and the 2015 growing season was no exception. The vines awoke early because of warm spring weather. By the time the vines began to flower, we had some unusually cool weather which reduced the number of grapes per cluster. We could already see we were in for a lighter crop–fewer grapes on each cluster and the grapes would be smaller because of dry soils due to the ongoing drought. The weather stayed warm throughout the summer, keeping the vines running about three weeks early. The yields were lower than most years but the flavors were fantastic. It was our earliest harvest ever. As the wines develop in the cellar, the quality has been outstanding.

The Wine

Our inaugural release of Sauvignon Blanc is full of exciting and lively flavors. Aromas of green apple, passion fruit and white peach complement complex layers of grapefruit and guava. The palate features crisp acidity and a lingering finish.

Food Affinities

A perfect wine for light summer fare; serve with white fish, oysters, fried chicken and vegetarian entrees. The wine is sassy enough to stand up to the bold flavors of Greek or Mexican food as long as the lemon juice is used lightly in all recipes.
