The second release of our signature Sauvignon Blanc!
Style: Light, Fruity
Flavors: Lemongrass, Melon
We found a Napa partner who reigns supreme in the farming and growing of Sauvignon Blanc, and I’m proud to offer our second vintage to you today.
Our Hughes Wellman 2012 Napa Sauvignon Blanc is a stunning wine with the same sourcing as our 2011 release, but in a better vintage. This wine comes from the southeastern hills of Napa Valley in a vineyard that resides on ancient, weathered, alluvial fans of silty soils that contribute an intense brightness and mineral austerity. The fruit for this wine was harvested by hand and meticulously hand-sorted. Like the 2011, the juice was cold fermented in 65% stainless steel tanks, 28% French oak barrels, and 7% concrete eggs, and underwent careful battonage to give the wine just the right consistency and texture.
