*Kelleher Block 21 Sauvignon Blanc
Kelleher Family Block 21 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, USA
The fruit is sourced from an organic vineyard just a mile north of us in the Oakville AVA. It is fresh and bright with aromas of ripe melon, pear, citrus, stone fruit and guava. Bright acidity and refreshing minerality treat you to a classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
The grapes are whole cluster pressed and settled for two days. The juice is then racked off the lees and warmed to 60 degrees to encourage native fermentation. When fermentation begins, the fermenting juice is barreled down into stainless steel and oak barrels. The wine is aged on the lees that is stirred twice a month for five months, then bottled.
