Sauvignon Blanc

2013 / Napa Valley

$ 42.00

They said it couldn't be done. How could we possibly top 2012? It wasn't easy, but a frost-free winter accompanied by warm summer temperatures brought fruit that could best be described as: Early, even, and excellent. Our bright and balanced 2013 Sauv Blanc has staked its claim as the leader in the Uproot arsenal. A golden vintage for this Golden State wine.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of basil and herbs entice, with a pleasantly unexpected zest of lime providing a preview of things to come. Bright acidity provides an initial pop, before relenting to an overwhelming gush of cantaloupe, pink lady apple, and pear. A harrowingly dry finish only gives way to the next refreshing sip.


Winemaking Info

Lees are dead yeast cells that sink to the bottom of wine during fermentation. Gross, right? Wrong. These particles of dead yeast help give wine increased richness and texture. Which is why we let our 2013 sit on its lees longer than ever before. Sauvignon Blanc has never tasted this complex.
