Honig Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Napa Valley California

2020 vintage – 96.8% Sauvignon Blanc, 2.7% Semillon, .3% Muscat. The fruit comes from sustainably farmed vineyard in Rutherford, as well as other nearby vineyards. The grapes were harvested during the cooler night-time and early morning temperatures, preserving the inherent aromas and flavors. All of the fruit was whole cluster pressed and the juice was settled overnight before racking off lees. The juice was fermented at moderately cool temperatures (60-65 F) in stainless steel tanks using a variety of yeast strains selected to enrich the aroma and flavor profiles of Sauvignon Blanc. Aged on light lees, in stainless steel tanks, prior to blending and bottling. Tasting notes: Bright, and fresh. The flavors and aromas are reminiscent of peaches, lemon curd, white grapefruit, and passion fruit with perfectly balanced notes of citrus, stone fruit. The fullness of the mid-palate is complemented by a crisp, lengthy finish.
