FARELLA 2012 SAUVIGNON BLANC NAPA VALLEY 750mL

Farella keeps only 15–20% of their Sauvignon Blanc grapes; the remainder goes to Lail Vineyards, Realm Cellars, and Tournesol. This estate bottled Sauvignon Blanc bears the name “La Luce,” an homage to this wine and the Farella's Italian heritage. But in particular to their founder, Frank Farella (alive and well!) and his passion for the vineyard and the spectacular sunsets to be enjoyed from their west-facing site on an almost daily basis. He produced the first Sauvignon Blanc from our vineyard in 1985.

Many Napa Valley Sauvignon Blancs are made with an attempt at richness and complexity but, too often, result in wines that are better compared to their Chardonnay cousins. The key to a lively Sauvignon Blanc is harvesting at the lowest sugar level in the ripeness window and a cold fermentation in a stainless steel tank and minimize the handling of the wine, again to maintain freshness.

Light and fresh with crisp acidity. Aromas and flavors of honeydew melon, grapefruit and lightly flinty. Crisp, clean and refreshing in the finish. Serve well-chilled before the meal, as guests arrive or on the patio with a light lunch.
