*Priest Ranch Sauvignon Blanc
Priest Ranch Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, USA
Bright and fresh, this Sauvignon Blanc smells of an orchard, with apple blossom, crunchy pear fruit, and hints of green leaves. This wine displays pure, crisp and tropical notes that is inviting on the nose and palate. Though clean and straightforward, the palate evolves steadily, with tart fruit, then a bite of bitter pith, followed by a long, savory finish. It shows softly crafted layers of lemon and vanilla that provides a lively mouthfeel on the finish.
Our Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in 100% stainless steel drums with native yeast at a controlled 60° F. When primary fermentation was complete, the wine was then sulfured to prevent Malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged on the lees and stirred twice a week before being bottled in December of 2018.
