2020 Merryvale Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
Sourced from a single vineyard site in Pope Valley, the fruit was hand harvested and pressed to tank for settling. The wine was barrel fermented in stainless steel drums and then transferred to neutral French cigar barrels for élevage. A time honored and labor intensive technique, barrel fermentation unlocks the potential of Sauvignon Blanc to be both luscious and precise.
Complex aromas of tropical fruits, wet stone, and honeysuckle. The classic barrel fermentation and élevage in neutral French oak provides generous texture combined with vibrant focus. An incredibly fresh, pure, and precise Sauvignon Blanc that showcases piercing acidity with layered balance. Enjoy now and over the next several years, as this style of Sauvignon Blanc can age beautifully. Enjoy now and for the next 5 years.
