2020 Napa Valley Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Winemakers Notes
This refreshing Sauvignon Blanc presents with hues of light pale straw with glancing hints of green. Powerful green lime aromas and grated lime peel combine with fresh fennel, caper and grapefruit. Green lime and grapefruit continue through the flavors with a vibrant and bright citrus feel, and threads of caper and anise spearing the profile. Lemon and lime zest zing through the finish of this opulent sauvignon blanc.

Vintage 2020
The 2020 growing season was cool and mild for most of the spring and summer with a few heat spells in early August that accelerated ripening. On the second day of harvest, the LNU fires converged on St. Supérys Dollarhide Ranch where the majority of our grapes are grown. Thankfully, we had harvested sauvignon blanc for this wine before the fires. As an estate brand with stringent quality standards, we made the difficult decision to not bottle any post-fire wine for 2020. As such, this is the only St. Supéry wine produced from the 2020 vintage; $5 from each bottle sold will benefit the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund in honor of our neighbors who came to our aid to make this wine possible.
