Napa Mary's Sauvignon Blanc

Napa Reserve Mary's Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $24.00 per bottle

Description: Mary’s Vineyard continues to produce wines with remarkable intensity and structure. This Sauvignon Blanc exudes ripe, exotic flavors on top of firm, palate-cleansing acids. In 2006 no new oak was used, allowing us to accentuate the bright, fresh fruit. Lightly grassy and very zingy, this wine brings together the best aspects of sauvignon blanc.

Varietal Definition
Sauvignon Blanc:
Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California — at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety — and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’. When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the wine world’s darlings. Steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character characterize dry wines made from this grape.
