2019 - Miller Ranch Sauvignon Blanc

On land first planted to vines in the 1870s, our Miller Ranch Vineyard is south of Yountville nestled between the Napa River and Hopper Creek. Here the soils are silty, cool, and deep, perfect for aromatic white wines. Open to the south, the vineyard enjoys the benefit of breezes and fog off the bay which contributes to the wine’s green citrus, melon notes, and bright minerality.

The long, warm summer saw very few extreme heat events, with foggy mornings setting the stage for vibrant and expressive wines. The long, relatively mild finish to the season, not without its moments of unpredictability, helped to preserve freshness and finesse in the fruit with abundant hang time teasing out great color, structure, and soft tannins. All in all, exceptional fruit with bright acidity and ample texture. Tasting Notes Bright and lively, with light aromatics of ruby red grapefruit, pineapple, and melon. Honeydew, tangelo and lime sorbet flavors burst through this well-balanced wine with energetic acidity and a crisp, mineral finish.
