Napa Crest Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018
91 - Wine Enthusiast
Beautiful soft gold color. The nose is complex and shows layers of exotic fruit flavors. Aromas lead with melon, fig and fresh pear. There is a floral note of gardenia with citrus zest. The texture is crisp and captures the mouthfeel of Semillon. The wine cleans the pallet and finishes refreshing. This Sauvignon Blanc is drinkable now and will drink nicely for 3+ years. This wine shows classic Napa Valley providence from the heart of Oakville in mid-Napa Valley.
This wines comes from Oakville and St. Helena. We hand tend all vines in each individual vineyard block. Napa Valley has more diversity in soil composition than all of Frnace.
All of our fruit is hand sorted and whole cluster pressed. The Sauvignon Blanc is tank fermented and does not undergo ML fermentation. The Semillion is fermented in neutral oak barrels and allowed lees contact. Native yeast is used with only small lots conducted using cultured cold fermentation isolates.
92% Sauvignon Blanc, 8% Semillon
