St. Supery Estate Sauvignon Blanc
2016 Napa Valley Estate Sauvignon Blanc
St. Supéry Estate Vineyards and Winery is a 100% Estate Grown, sustainably farmed winery located in the renowned Rutherford growing region in the heart of Napa Valley. Committed to producing the highest quality estate wines without compromise, we focus on sustainable winery and farming operations to protect the land and environment for future generations. Our Napa Valley Estate collection includes our agship varietals Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon along with Oak Free Chardonnay, Rosé and Moscato. These wines are balanced and showcase bright, fruit-forward avors.
This is a well-balanced and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc with pale yellow hues sparked by hints of green. Expressive aromas of passion fruit, pink grapefruit and lime are rich and enticing with a touch of caper. On the palate, avors of grapefruit and lime zest come together with passion fruit to create an intense and delicious wine.
2016 saw a near-perfect growing season.A warm spring jump started bud break and an ideal June and July followed with moderate daytime temperatures and cool nights. August was cooler allowing for an even and steady growing season which encouraged the fruit to ripen uniformly under slow, steady conditions. Harvest started on August 16th, 10 days later than last year and wrapped up right before Napa saw a signi cant rainfall on October 14th. Yields were as expected and the quality of the fruit was exceptional. Harvested in the cool morning hours to preserve the delicate avors, the fruit was received in the cellar, where the grapes were pressed to tank and immediately chilled and settled prior to fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
