Honig Sauvignon Blanc 2022, Napa Valley California

2022 vintage – 97.2% Sauvignon Blanc, 1.2% Sauvignon Gris, 1.2% Semillon, 0.4% Muscat. 52% Napa County, 48% 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: Bright, inviting floral, pear and citrus aromas lead to a lively and harmonious palate. Resplendent with jasmine and citrus notes that range from grapefruit to lemongrass and kafir lime, delightfully nuanced by tropical notes, this wine delivers quintessential Honig sauvignon blanc style.
