SAUVIGNON BLANC

Sauvignon Blanc is a green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France. The grape most likely gets its name from the French words sauvage ("wild") and blanc ("white") due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France. Sauvignon Blanc is planted in many of the world's wine regions, producing a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine. The grape is also a component of the famous dessert wines from Sauternes and Barsac. Sauvignon Blanc is widely cultivated in France, Chile, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Washington and California. Some New World Sauvignon blancs, particularly from California, may also be called "Fume Blanc". Depending on the climate, the flavor can range from aggressively grassy to sweetly tropical. In cooler climates, the grape has a tendency to produce wines with noticeable acidity and "green flavors" of grass, green bell peppers and nettles with some tropical fruit (such as passion fruit) and floral (such as elderflower) notes. In warmer climates, it can develop more tropical fruit notes but risk losing a lot of aromatics from over-ripeness, leaving only slight grapefruit and tree fruit (such as peach) notes.

    Ancient Peak's 2016 Sauvignon Blanc opens with bright aromas of peach, guava, citrus and wet stone. A round, soft texture envelopes the palate with luscious flavors of pear and tropical fruit, all underlain by a subtle minerality. The roundness yields to raciness on the finish, with pitchperfect acidity and lingering notes of lime zest.

  • ARKENSTONE 2014 SAUVIGNON BLANC "NVD" NAPA VALLEY 750mL

    Item #: 203390

    Arkenstone sits on a rocky and rugged slope high atop Howell Mountain, looking down into the Napa Valley. The vineyards change in elevation to the tune of 250 feet, and the soils are a mix of Tufa, iron rich red clay, and abundant rocky areas. Even though proprietors Ron and Susan Krausz planted their first vines on the property in 1998, it wasn't until several years later that their first "true" vintage was bottled.

    With the help of the talented and famous winemaker Philippe Melka, Ron and Susan tasted many wines and blends from their property for many years. Each year, they listened to which techniques in the vineyard translated to better wine. Again, each year, they fine-tuned these practices until they were sure the vineyard was well-established, trained properly, and were producing world-class wines.

    Enter Sam Kaplan; Arkenstone Vineyard Manager and Winemaker since their commercial release. Sam has, since day one at Arkenstone, farmed the vineyards organically. Sam is exceptionally knowledgeable, and not only uses Arkenstone's state-of-the-art winemaking facility to its fullest, but he also knows when to be "hands off", and let the vineyard's own characteristics shine; terroir, if you will.

    When Arkenstone decided to expand their Sauvignon Blanc program, they found a site high in the Eastern/ Mountains of Napa Valley that sits just above the fog at elevations mirroring that of Arkenstone's Howell Mountain Estate. Over the course of a couple years they established an amazing block of Sauvignon Blanc using the same clone as Arkenstone's Estate. Utilizing the same winemaking technique that makes Arkenstone's Estate Sauvignon Blanc so special, and Winemaker, Sam Kaplan’s oversight in the vineyard, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc is a stunning addition Arkenstone's family of wines.

  • ARROW & BRANCH 2015 SAUVIGNON BLANC NAPA VALLEY 750mL

    Item #: 201530
    Bottle Size: 750ml

    Arrow & Branch proprietors (and Laguna Beach locals) Steve and Seanne Contursi share a great love for the wines of Bordeaux, particularly those produced with a large quantity of Cabernet Franc, such as Château Cheval Blanc. The couple sought out their Coombsville vineyard property with an eye to producing top-quality Cabernet Franc-based wines from Napa Valley. They bought the Arrow & Branch Vineyard in November 2007, as this vineyard was the source of Tony Soter's renowned and highly rated Little Creek Cabernet Franc. The Contursi's have maintained the organic farming and, through their work with the detail-oriented Viticulturalist Mike Wolf, are continually improving this wonderful vineyard site.

    One of the rising stars of Napa Valley winemaking, Jennifer Williams, was named Winemaker for Arrow & Branch in April 2011. After years of working with and learning from legendary winemakers such as Rosemary Cakebread, Francoise Peschon, and the Novak family, Jennifer now brings her outstanding talents and experience to Arrow & Branch. In 2002, Williams joined Araujo and Spottswoode as a harvest intern, splitting her time between these two great winemaking estates. At Spottswoode, Jennifer was drawn to the philosophy of organic and sustainable farming, which Tony Soter had introduced in 1985. Following harvest, she joined their team full time, working under guru David Abreu in the fields and Rosemary Cakebread in the winery. In 2004, with a deeper understanding of the estate vineyard, she took over as Vineyard Manager and was Spottswoode's Winemaker from 2006 to 2011. The San Francisco Chronicle named Jennifer a "Winemaker to Watch" in 2007.

    The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc vibrates with energy and verve. Sourced from two superb Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc vineyards, the blend is minerally, bright and focused with a hint of pleasant sweetness and ever-present fruit. The touch of new French Oak adds just a hint of clove and gingerbread, and a bit of honey. The finish is mouth-watering and reminiscent of oranges and rocks.

    WINEMAKERS NOTES - "Vibrant and fresh…This Sauvignon Blanc is easy to enjoy. Bogle winemakers use reductive winemaking techniques and cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks to create a classically-styled wine which captivates the true varietal essence of the grape. Lively citrus zest and lemongrass notes color the nose, while the clean and and refreshing flavors of key lime and freshly cut grass are intensely aromatic. The mouthfeel, bracing with acidity, remains laced with touches of softer, enticing fruit. Finishing crisp and satisfying, this wine makes your mouth water for more."

    This perennial favorite, named after owner and winemaker Fred Brander’s late daughter, exhibits remarkable balance and extraordinary zip with this 2015 vintage. A toothsome blend of 37% Sauvignon Blanc, 38% Pinot Gris and 25% Riesling, this shows as a very pale gold in the glass, and opens with aromas of honeysuckle, and fresh lychee nut. The beguiling palate, generous and piquant, echoes the lychee nut found on the nose, and also suggests pink grapefruit zest and native California sourgrass.

    ANTONIO GALLONI 90 POINTS - "The 2015 Cuvee Natalie, a blend of Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling, is very nicely textured and balanced throughout. At this early stage, the wine is very Sauvignon Blanc-dominated. And the price? Exceptionally fair considering the quality in the bottle."

    CADE is owned by the same owners as Plumpjack... and in their typical fashion, they would never be “happy enough” to make a “good” Sauvignon Blanc: CADE only wants to make outstanding Sauvignon Blanc! In order to do this, they ferment their grapes in a combination of stainless steel tanks, stainless steel drums, French oak and concrete eggs. In addition, a combination of native and cultured yeasts are used, and the culmination of all this helps to give the wine aromatic and textural complexity.

    CADE's 2016 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a wine filled with a gorgeous perfume of honeyed pears, guava, lemon grass, pink grapefruit and a waft of lemon lime soda. The palate is full of tropical flavors and delicate kiwi plus a great intensity of lemon and lime citrus flavors. The Semillon and viognier added to the blend invoke another level of complexity with flavors orange blossom and lemon curd. The barrel fermentations add a satiny texture, density and viscosity to the mid-palate of the wine. The concrete adds a touch of flint and mineral to the finish of the wine while the stainless steel fermentations preserve the natural Sauvignon Blanc aromatics, the racy backbone and the zesty crispness.

    A blend of Semillon, Muscadelle, and Palomino.

    Winery's Tasting Notes: "An inviting fresh and spicy nose, exhibiting key lime, balsa, honeysuckle and macaroon scents. More lithe and harmonious on the palate than previous vintages, with less oak influence. The acidity is in check, while the Semillon provides a slightly oily character, married with the green apple, melon, preserved lemon and white grapefruit influences. A touch of toast and gingerbread on the finish. This wine is a lovely sipper and should complement cheese plates, seafood, and light pasta dishes in particular. A singular and distinctive white. Drink 2017 – 2020."

    When Cliff Lede (pronounced "LAY-dee") was in his late 20s, he was given his first taste of good Bordeaux. After that, as it has been said so many times before, he was hooked! Since that time, he has acquired a vineyard in the Napa Valley, and immediately assembled a team who is dedicated to taking Bordeaux varietals to a whole new level... and they’re doing what it takes to achieve that!

    At the head of the winemaking team is the talented and dedicated Michelle Edwards. She earned a B.S. in viticulture and enology ad UC Davis, endured 12-hour graveyard shifts at a grape-crushing facility in southern Australia, and worked harvests at Peter Michael and J Vineyards & Winery. She came to Cliff Lede Vineyards from Colgin Cellars, where she served as the assistant winemaker for three years, and worked with master viticulturist David Abreu. David is now managing the vineyards at Cliff Lede, and together, he and Michelle continue working to source the secrets of each vintage.

    The Sauvignon Blanc comes from three different vineyards; two which impart vibrancy and finesse, and one from Rutherford for richness. To prevent one dominant tone, different processes were used; some fruit was whole-clusterpressed, while another portion was subjected to 16 hours of skin contact. The juice was fermented in stainless steel,oak barrels and concrete to preserve freshness and build complexity. We thought it was a knockout! Enticing aromas of white peach, cantaloupe, and orange blossom are complemented by bright, citrus notes of lemon curd and zest. Tropical flavors of pineapple and carambola introduce a rich and concentrated palate that finishes with persistent minerality.

    John Bolta worked the Caymus bottling line for years before he began to work alongside Chuck Wager in the winemaking duties. In 1988, John became the winemaker for the white wines, and he created Conundrum, a blend unlike any other at the time. The idea is to produce a wine full of fruit flavors, yet retain complexity and balance. While this wine is often imitated, there truly is only one Conundrum white wine. Grapes come from Napa, Monterey, and Santa Barbara Counties, and the wine is a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscat Canelli, and Viognier. From the second you pour yourself a glass, you are invited with intriguing aromas of green apple, tangerine, and honeysuckle blossoms. The taste is best described as exotic and ever so slightly sweet, with layers of peach, apricot nectar, green melon and pear, overlaid with subtle notes of citrus zest and spicy vanilla. A rich, round mouth feel supported by fresh acidity brings the complexity of this wine into balance.

    The boys at Dragonette bonded over a bottle of Didier Dagueneau, and searched throughout Santa Barbara's Santa Ynez Valley to find vineyards that could best exemplify the enticing characteristics of this grape. They have found those vineyards, and now their Sauvignon Blancs have become some of our favorites! Happy Canyon, with its unique soils and climate - warm to hot summer days and cool to cold evenings - is ideal for promoting full phenolic ripeness while still retaining critical acidity. This bottling represents an appellation blend of lots they feel express the characteristics of Happy Canyon; explosive, bright yellow and tropical fruits and melons balanced by fresh, clean and present acidity, but without the herbaceousness sometimes associated with the grape. The Happy Canyon bottling is a 50-50 blend of grapes from Grassini and Vogelzang, both top notch vineyards, exquisitely farmed for ultra high quality. The wine was fermented and aged on its lees in 80% neutral oak barrels and 20% stainless steel. The wine demonstrates the classic Vogelzang tropical fruit notes along with the elegant energy of the Grassini vineyard and great body and length.

    - "Located in Buellton, Dragonette Cellars was created in 2005 with a partnership between John and Steve Dragonette, and Brandon Sparks-Gillis, who takes the lead on the winemaking front. These are beautiful, distinctive and incredibly high quality wines across the board, and at the top end are some of the most impressive wines I was able to taste from Santa Barbara County."

    "Racy, lively and vibrant, with green citrus, buttered lemon and orange blossom, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Happy Canyon Of Santa Barbara (equal parts Grassini Family and Vogelzang vineyards) is medium-bodied, fresh and lively, with both fruit and texture. It will drink nicely for a year or more."

    Dry Creek Vineyard has produced Fume Blanc since 1972--this is a wine at the heart and soul of this family winery. Modeled after the classic wines from the Loire Valley in France, this stainless steel-fermented, no-oak style Fume Blanc is crisp, balanced and immediately drinkable. Winery founder David Stare was the first vintner to plant Sauvignon Blanc in the Dry Creek Valley, and they proudly carry his legacy forward in producing this classic, dry, white wine. This is wine as distinctive and vibrant as the sailboats gracing their winery labels since 1982 (they are passionate about the sport!).

    The nose on this Fume is rich: notes of citrus, Meyer lemon and kaffir lime, with a touch of creamy gooseberry, spring melon and salt air. The palate starts lush with amply viscosity as flavors of lemon-lime citrus, white peach and lemon grass meld seamlessy--all while being uplifted by streaks of clean minerality and buoyant acidity. Rigged for running, this delicious, crisp, fruit-filled wine is definitely ship-shape and Bristol fashion--perfect for hot August nights and fresh oysters.

    Eric Kent Sauvignon Blanc continues its ever-growing evolution! Now with a new block of Fallenleaf Vineyard planted over to the Musque clone at their request, Eric Kent is getting deeper, more tropical and melony aromas and flavors than ever before. Yet at the same time, they’ve fine-tuned the wine to express a bit more precision and pedigree. The 2016 is everything you'd expect from EK Sauvignon Blanc and then some: loads of exotic fruit aromatics and a palate presence that is not often found in many examples of the grape. Part of this texture comes from a roughly 3% addition of the previous vintage held lovingly in neutral barrels for a year to add further layering and complexity.

    Groth's 2016 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer Napa Valley microclimates gave them grapes that result in wines with a lush, full melon/citrus character in the aroma and in the flavor. The cooler Napa Valley fruit provides a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness that balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging.
