2019 Bread & Butter Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc
100% Stainless Steel
This wine is crisp and dry with vibrant, ripe flavors of guava, apricot, honeysuckle, green apple, lemon zest and candied lemon peel. Tropical fruit aromas are complemented by floral notes and a grassy character. These complex aromas and bright fruit are preserved beautifully through meticulous practices by our Winemaker including gentle hand-harvesting and a cool fermentation in stainless steel. Post-fermentation lees contact adds a layer of creamy richness to the finish.
This Sauvignon Blanc primarily comes from a single vineyard alongside the Napa Valley River in St. Helena. The warm days combine with the cool breeze from the river to ensure these grapes ripen fully while retaining their high acidity and varietal characteristics. Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley is beloved for its attractive fruit notes and grassy character that make it the perfect pre-dinner and first course wine. Our Winemaker loves making Sauvignon Blanc and worked hard to create this beautiful expression of Sauvignon Blanc from the Napa Valley.
The 2019 growing season in Napa Valley will continue to be celebrated in years to come. While bud-break was delayed due to a cooler Spring, the warm yet steady summer months allowed the grapes to ripen evenly. Grapes in the Napa Valley also befitted from a long, slow Harvest without heat spikes or rain. Winemakers, including our own, reported that their 2019 wines show great complexity, expression and power.
