The 2016 vintage was another ideal vintage for Sauvignon Blanc, showing complexity on the nose with nice fresh notes (lime leaf and lemongrass), citrus notes (key lime), floral notes (citrus blossom), and tropical notes (guava, lychee, pineapple). This is achieved by sourcing from many different vineyards throughout the region and using both Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc in the final blend.

"Fermented in a combination of neutral French oak and stainless steel and blended with 2% Sémillon, this lively white sizzles with lemony acidity and a strong streak of grapefruit and lemongrass flavor. With its high acidity and crispness, it has length and zip." - 91pts, Virginie Boone Wine Enthusiast
Production Notes
By sourcing our Sauvignon Blanc from different regions of the Napa Valley, each component contributes its own distinct expression to the fi nal blend. Sauvignon Blanc is very characteristic of where it is grown with each site providing a different aspect of the varietal. After being handpicked and sorted, some of the fruit for this Starmont Sauvignon Blanc was whole cluster pressed and the rest de-stemmed with skin contact. Fermentation was in a combination of stainless steel tanks (59%) and neutral French oak barrels (41%); the wine not undergoing malolactic fermentation. Our intent is to preserve and enhance the varietal nuances and textural complexity. The wine was aged 3 months in neutral French oak barrels, and will continue to develop for two years from vintage.
Winemaker Notes
The 2016 vintage was another ideal vintage for Sauvignon Blanc, very similar to 2015. It started early with a long growing season, and although it cooled down around the beginning of harvest, most of the Sauvignon Blanc was ripe and ready. The goal for this wine is complexity on the nose with nice fresh notes (lime leaf and lemongrass), citrus notes (key lime), fl oral notes (citrus blossom), and tropical notes (guava, lychee, pineapple), which is achieved by sourcing from many different vineyards throughout the region and using both Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc in the fi nal blend.
