"A blend of 81% Sauvignon Blanc and 19% Sémillon, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc sings of fresh white peaches, pink grapefruit and pineapple with hints of lemon drops, lime blossom and mown grass. Medium-bodied, the palate is soft on the acid yet refreshing, featuring bags of tropical and citrus fruit with a satiny texture, finishing on a satisfying savory note." (WA)

"Aromas of lemon and grapefruit zest, fresh pear and green apple. It’s medium-bodied with crisp acidity. Creamy with a hint of blanched almonds on the finish. Drink now. Screw cap." (JS)

"Including 19% Semillon, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc sports a light gold hue as well as a juicy, melon and lemon-scented style that's medium-bodied, has a balanced, clean texture, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It's well worth drinking over the coming year or so." (JD)

Winery Notes:
At Duckhorn Vineyards, we have been making our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc since 1982. Harvested from our estates and select Napa Valley vineyards, this rich and elegant Sauvignon Blanc was blended with Sémillon to add depth and complexity. Fermented and aged using both stainless steel and French oak, its favors ripe citrus and tropical flavors, refreshing acidity and Sémillon-driven silkiness.

VINTAGE NOTES:
2019 brought another exceptional vintage to Napa Valley, resulting in wines with alluring polish and poise! e season began with a wet winter followed by a mild spring. While this led to a slightly later-than-normal start to the season, ideal summer weather with no significant heat spikes ensured ideal flavor development, yielding complex and vibrant whites, and refined reds with elegant tannins, enticing aromatics and beautiful fruit flavors.

WINEMAKING NOTES:
This bright and captivating Sauvignon Blanc begins with head-turning aromas of pineapple, mango, guava, lemon cream and nectarine. The luxurious tropical notes are echoed on the palate, where they mingle with flavors of lychee, peach, white flowers and honeydew melon, all gliding to a fresh and focused finish.
