CADE 2013 SAUVIGNON BLANC NAPA VALLEY 750mL

This is the fantastic Howell Mountain project from Plumpjack Winery. In addition to their estate fruit, Cade worked with 5 small growers in St. Helena, Oakville, and Oak Knoll District to get the best fruit possible. Fermentation was carried out in a combination of stainless steel tanks (59%), stainless steel drums (22%), French Chateau barrels (15%) and the balance (4%) was fermented in concrete eggs. Three strains of yeast were used on the stainlessfermented portion while 80% of the barrel ferments were inoculated and 20% were allowed to ferment with native yeasts. Fermentation lasted for an average of 32 days at 53o F. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited to retain the wine's vibrant acidity.

The resulting increase in quality is readily apparent. Aromas of Lychee, Honeydew Melons, spearmint and freshly mown hay are followed on the palate with flavors of melon, figs, Fiji apple and spring peas. A little more acid than the 2013 results in a mouthwatering finish that brings you back for a second glass!!!
