Sauvignon Blanc Route 29, Napa Valley – 2015
“This bright and vibrant 2015 RouteStock Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of vineyards from across Napa Valley. The wines were fermented in stainless steel, concrete eggs, new and neutral French oak, and further aged on the natural lees in each of these containers for almost seven months. The use of concrete egg and French oak enhances the length of the pallet and gives the wine strength and extra nuances, while the stainless steel helps the wine retain a great freshness.
“The aromas jump out of the glass like no other Sauvignon Blanc, reminiscent of figs, kiwi, grapefruit and bougainvillea. The palate has that great combination of strength and lift that is magical in Sauvignon Blanc when it happens. The flavors are of kiwi, toasted pine nuts, figs, grapefruit and lemongrass. The finish is amazingly long for such a bright wine with all of the aromatic lift. The wine leaves you salivating from its savory side and thirsty for more from the acidity. Enjoy this wine as much as we enjoyed making it!” Vance Rose, Winemaker
