Napa Valley 2021

Sauvignon Blanc

Napa Valley
$19.20 CLUB

This wine offers an authentic expression of cooler-climate Sauvignon Blanc. Its bright, natural acidity is juicy and thirst-quenching, while complex aromatics and lifted flavors of grapefruit and citrusy lime are accented beautifully by wet stone minerality. The elegant, textured mouthfeel leads to a clean, crisp finish.

90 Points, James Suckling

Kimberlee Nicholls on the 2021 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Learn why this fresh and aromatic wine is perfect for summer sipping.

Vineyard Notes

  • Fruit comes primarily from the Oak Knoll District at the southern end of the Napa Valley.
  • Proximity to the San Pablo Bay brings cooling fog to this region – ideal for maintaining natural acidity which lends to the bright and refreshing character.
  • Fermented solely in stainless steel to preserve authentic aromatics, minerality and citrus fruit flavors.
  • Brix at Harvest: 22°

 

The vibrant acidity makes it a great food wine — almost begs to be paired with food. Pairs superbly with the salty-citrus flavors of ceviche or a fresh salad with feta and a tangy vinaigrette.

KIMBERLEE NICHOLLS, WINEMAKER

Harvest Notes

  • The 2021 vintage will be remembered for low yields of intensely-aromatic, flavorful fruit, with a smooth and uneventful harvest season.
  • January and February saw rain, then almost no notable precipitation for the rest of the season, which provided an ideal environment for grapes to flower, bloom and set in early spring.
  • Grapes ripened early and evenly during a summer with no heat spikes.
  • Harvest kicked off with clear skies and almost no concerning weather events.
