Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A vibrantly intense Sauvignon Blanc, sun-ripened Asian pear and creamy lemon curd flavors weave together with the faintest hint of white blossoms and jalapeno in this deliciously expressive, layered Sauvignon Blanc. 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Vineyard Notes
Robert Mondavi purchased the Wappo Hill Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Stags Leap District in 1969. The name Wappo, meaning 'brave', speaks to the history of this acclaimed vineyard site and the Native American tribe which lived on the hill and other sites throughout Napa Valley. The majority of grapes for this wine were selected from a single vineyard block on Wappo Hill where the Sauvignon Blanc expresses an intensity of flavor.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were hand harvested and immediately whole cluster pressed. After the juice was settled, 100% of the wine was fermented in older, neutral French oak barrels to add creaminess to the palate. The yeast for this fermentation was selected specifically to enhance Sauvignon Blanc's aromatics and flavors. The wine remained in barrel for six months for integration of flavor and textural richness. No malolactic fermentation occurred so the natural, focused acidity was maintained. The wine was bottled in April, 2017.
