Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc 2022, Napa Valley California

“Our Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in the Napa Valley and the North Coast, including in our own estate ranches in Carneros, Napa, Rutherford, and Calistoga. The cooler, southern part of the valley gives us sauvignon blanc with bright citrus characters, flinty minerality, and balanced acidity, while the warmer northern region brings out tropical notes in the final wine.” 2022 vintage: 94% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon, 1% Sauvignon Musqué. Fermentation: 97% in steel tanks and 2% in concrete eggs, 1% in neutral barrels to soften its acidity. Aging: 98% aged for 5 months in neutral French oak; 2% in concrete egg.
