Rombauer Sauvignon Blanc 2023, Napa – Sonoma, California

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 with a screw cap closure, to preserve the freshness and vibrancy so appealing in this Sauvignon Blanc. Lifted and concentrated aromas of passion fruit, green melon, and hints of fresh cut grass all dance on the nose. The palate is linear and intense, with similar flavors that are joined by notes of kiwi and Key lime. Each sip is framed with mouthwatering acidity and a burst of grapefruit that lifts the long finish.100% Sauvignon Blanc. Cooperage: 89% stainless steel tank, 9% neutral French oak barrels, 2% concrete tanks. Appellation: 73% Sonoma County, 27% Napa County.
