Starlight bright hues with the faintest hint of pale straw. The nose is bounding out of the glass with flavors of lemon zest, pink grapefruit, and passion fruit pulp, underpinned by lemon oil and peaches of the Semillon. The palate is taut, expressive, and beautifully textured. Not your typical Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. The back palate is loaded with fresh citrus flavors and a creamy texture. The chalky acidity adds wonderful persistence and poise. No sharp edges, just beautifully balanced. Served well chilled in a fine white wine glass.
Vineyard Notes: Located in the back blocks of the cool and famed Napa Valley AVA of Carneros. Fruit from this vineyard typically exhibits a generous fruit profile due to the sand and loam subsoil and the granite bedrock scattered throughout. Warm days and cool nights are the key to the ripening cycle of this magnificent vineyard.
