The fruit for this wine comes from premium growing sites in Napa and Sonoma Counties that offer abundant sunshine yet moderate temperatures – ideal conditions for cultivating delicious Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed while the fruit was still cool. The majority of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks, while the remainder fermented in a combination of French oak barrels and concrete tanks, imparting weight and texture to the finished wine. The wine was bottled under Stelvin aluminum closure – another Rombauer first – to preserve the freshness and vibrancy so appealing in this Sauvignon Blanc. Lifted aromas of Key lime, honeydew melon, and passion fruit all jump out of the glass supported by hints of freshly cut grass in the background. Those fresh lime and honeydew flavors continue to the palate, joined by kiwi and subtle herbaceous notes, all mingling together in a lively way. The wine is linear and focused, ending with enticing, mouthwatering acidity that will leave you wanting more. 76% Sonoma County, 24% Napa County. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Cooperage: 87% stainless steel tank, 10% neutral French oak barrels, 3% concrete tanks.
