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

Vineyard Notes
The 2015 growing season in Napa Valley started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring. This resulted in an early budbreak and bloom. Colder temperatures in May (during the peak of bloom) caused uneven fruit set which ultimately resulted in much smaller crop in 2015, compared to both average yields and also the three abundant years that preceded it. The harvest was one of the earliest on record in Napa Valley. While ongoing drought was of great concern to farmers around California, Napa Valley received 75 percent of normal rainfall for the water year, bringing far fewer water concerns for Napa Valley's vintners.
