2020 Sauvignon Blanc
For the past five vintages, the Clark Family has crafted a Sauvignon Blanc from vines off of Galleron Road in Rutherford. The site sits in the former Napa Riverbed, creating a rocky and mineral-rich home for the vines. This unique terroir helps to create a style of wine that is more reminiscent of a Loire Valley Sancerre: crisp, clean, lean, and with great acidity.
2020 was another perfect growing season with a long, warm summer. The fruit was picked in mid-August 2020 and cold-settled in stainless steel. From the tank, the wine was moved into neutral, French Oak barrels where the wine fermented for two weeks. The barrels were then racked and the wine was aged in neutral French Oak for seven months. This vintage has bright aromas of citrus, basil, and melon and has a zingy, bright finish.
This wine will be available to ship the last week of March 2021.
