2019 DALLA GASPERINA VINEYARD SAUVIGNON BLANC (RUTHERFORD)
Not Yet Rated
This vineyard, located on Galleron Road at the northern end of Rutherford, produces wines of great character and depth. We've been producing sauv blanc since 2015 and we think the 2019 might be our best vintage thus far... it has the creamy mouth feel of our 2017 with the concentrated purity of fruit similar to 2018. For those who have not tried this wine yet - our sauvignon blanc style is more French-influenced.
Our 2019 sauvignon blanc is pale straw in the glass with notes of orange blossoms, apricots and tropical notes in the nose. The palate is fresh, clean and vibrant, with Mandarin orange, citrus and hints of minerality - and a long finish. 95% sauvignon blanc and 5% semillon - the semillon adds a richness to the mid-palate and a touch of acidity keeps the wine in balance. Fermented in stainless and barrel aged in neutral French Oak.
Perfect Pairings: scallops, crab cakes, grilled fish, chicken, charcuterie.
