2017 DALLA GASPERINA VINEYARD SAUVIGNON BLANC (RUTHERFORD) - WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS!
Always a limited release - always quick to sell out - ORDER TODAY!
This vineyard, located on Galleron Road at the northern end of Rutherford, produces wines of great character and depth. Our 2017 sauvignon blanc is a golden straw color in the glass with mandarin orange, orange blossoms and tropical notes in the nose. The complex palate expresses orange rind and citrus along with hints of minerality. Our 2017 is 93% sauvignon blanc and 7% 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. Might be our best sauvignon blanc to-date!
Perfect Pairings: scallops, crab cakes, grilled fish, chicken, charcuterie.
WINE ADVOCATE... "Containing 7% Semillon, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Dalla Gasperina Vineyard gives up notions of waxed lemons, pink grapefruit and nectarines with wafts of honeysuckle and coriander seed. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with juicy stone fruit flavors with citrus accents and a racy line, finishing on a spicy note." 90 points (Lisa Perrotti-Brown)
