Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Napa Valley California

Duckhorn has been making this Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc since 1982. The grapes are harvested from Duckhorn’s estates and select Napa Valley vineyards. 2017 vintage: 82% Sauvignon Blanc, 18% Sémillon. Aging & Oak: 5 months sur lie, 90% stainless steel, 10% new French oak. Enticing aromas of grapefruit, melon and lime leap from the glass, followed by tropical notes of lychee, pineapple and passionfruit. On the palate, this Sauvignon Blanc is juicy and bright, with silky layers of fruit balanced by lovely natural acidity and a vibrant streak of minerality. Hints of zesty citrus and subtle baking spices linger throughout a long, focused finish.
