2017 Merryvale Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
Our Sauvignon Blanc is a very small, hand-crafted and artisan produced wine. The techniques used go back to the time Winemaker Simon Faury spent in Bordeaux working for one of the most renowned Sauvignon Blanc and white wine producers in the world, Domaine de Chevalier. First we use the basket press, which delivers very low yields but extracts at low pressure giving us only the best juices—the clearest with the highest acidity. This results in a wine that is deep and rich with aromas of stone fruit, citrus, guava and grapefruit. Fresh and lively on the mouth, our Sauvignon Blanc is very balanced with a nice weight and freshness overall. The finish is very floral with a touch of savory herbs.
