2021 OLABISI SAUVIGNON BLANC

NAPA VALLEY

STORY: The last bottling from this stunning vineyard in Napa's Oak Knoll District. A vintage mostly defined by a persistent drought that, while frustrating in its low yields, continues to drive intense varietal flavors in the resulting wines. Fermented using four select yeast strains, this year in 20% french oak, 80% stainless steel barrels. Left to mature undisturbed on the lees from September to March, when we assemble the blend for bottling.

VINEYARD: A beautiful Oak Knoll gem with fruit that tastes as stunning as the wines it makes.

HARVEST: Mid September 2021

Brix: 24.6°

VINIFICATION: We like to ferment the SB in a combination of small stainless steel barrels and neutral French oak. We also use a wide variety of exotic yeast strains to bring multilayered complexity to the blend.

ELEVAGE: 6 months, sur lees.

ALC: 14.5%

PRODUCTION: 105 cases

TASTING NOTES—A showy and impressive Sauv Blanc that seems to pack in all the flavor and energy that Napa can offer. Opulent aromas of rich ripe stone fruits, lemon lime, fresh melon and heady tropical notes. The palate mirrors the bouquet, with a vibrant richness that's almost electric. White peaches, pears, Meyer lemons, and hints of coconut echo across the lively palate, finishing with a delectable, thirst quenching tang. (Enjoy 2022 - 2031. 105 cases produced)
