Honig Sauvignon Blanc 2023, Napa Valley California

2023 vintage – 98% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% Muscat, 1% Semillon. 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: Honeysuckle and stone fruit aromas and flavors flow into a perfectly round mid-palate, followed by bright citrus reminiscent of lime and ruby grapefruit. A layered and delicious Sauvignon Blanc in the classic Honig style, easily enjoyed on its own or with lighter seasonal fare.
