2014 Sauvignon Blanc
Napa Valley - Released June 2015
The grapes are sourced from the Heitz hillside vineyard on the eastern hills of the Napa Valley. 100% Organic Sauvignon Blanc grapes were barrel fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and neutral French oak barrels. To add an interesting dimenssion to the wine, we used 2 new Acacia berrels (out of 16 barrel lot).
The 2014 Alta Winery Sauvignon Blanc opens with a floral nose, which has hints of orange blossoms, jasmine, honeysuckle, and stone fruits. The bouquet of white peaches gives way to citrius and gooseberry, quintessential Sauvignon Blanc aromas. In the mouth, there is fresh acidity which complements the ripe honeydew melon flavors, all with a steely, flinty, mineral finish. There is good length, lingering honey and thirst quenching acidity. Drink now, chilled.
