Silverado Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Miller Ranch, Yountville, Napa Valley, California

In 1981, Ron and Diane Miller established Silverado Vineyards in the heart of Stags Leap District. Located west of the Napa River and south of Yountville is the Miller Ranch Yountville Vineyard, noted for its Semillon and its fruity, spicy Sauvignon Blanc. The soils are silty, cool and deep, perfect for aromatic white wines. Open to the south, the vineyard enjoys the benefit of breeze and fog off the bay. 2018 vintage: 95% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon. 100% Miller Ranch. Maturation: 100% stainless steel tanks, no malolactic fermentation. Wonderfully bright and spritzy, with light aromatics of grapefruit, pineapple, and kiwi. Passionfruit, mango and lemon curd flavors burst through this well-balanced wine with bright acidity and hints of lime zest and tangerine on the finish.
