About

95

Among the many things the Duckhorn team excels at, its Sauvignon Blanc is one of my longtime favorites. It’s one of the most complex Sauvignons made in the Napa Valley and this vintage is no exception. Showing scents of grapefruit and white peach, it is exquisitely balanced and has impressive length on the palate.

Dare I say that this is Duckhorn’s other flagship wine? Merlot fame aside, this is a great bottle of creamy-crisp, flavorful bottle as always. A more Euro-styled offering than most new world offerings, it delights with melon, soft citrus and stony minerality, saving easy herbaceousness for the finish where it extends everything beautifully. The legacy continues.

Product Description:

From the Winemakers Website: Varietal Content: 85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Sémillon; Winemaking: 92% stainless steel, 8% new French oak Winemaker Notes: This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc begins with enticing aromas of lemongrass, lychee, passionfruit, melon & pineapple, followed by hints of white nectarine & lime. On the juicy palate, a subtle viscosity is perfectly balanced by refreshing acidity that adds precision to the citrus & tropical fruit flavors, while driving the wine to a bright, zesty finish. Production: For both red & white grapes, 2018 offered near picture-perfect growing conditions, with mild spring & summer weather, & no significant heat events. The conditions were ideal for both our Semillon & Sauvignon Blanc, which show beautiful tropical notes & ripe flavors at low sugars.
