Honig Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Napa Valley California

2021 vintage – 97% Sauvignon Blanc, 1.4% Sauvignon Gris, 1.3% Semillon, 0.3% Muscat. 66% Napa County, 34% Lake County. 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: An enticing mix of honeysuckle, peach and tropical fruit aromas to a luxurious blend of floral, stone fruit and a mélange of citrus flavors on the palate. The wine is simultaneously elegant and rich, perfectly balanced from the gorgeous nose all the way through the lengthy, layered finish.
