Tasting Notes:

Our 2007 Starmont Sauvignon blanc exhibits classic pale-straw color, with intense aromatics of lemon zest, crenshaw melon, kiwi and ripe grapefruit along with pronounced mineral and wet-stone with a hint of herbal “green” Sauvignon note. The wine has excellent viscosity combining barrel-fermented roundness with refreshing acidity leading to a long finish.

Vineyard Notes:

The 2007 vintage was one of the best in recent memory. After a normal bud break, the valley experienced mild weather through the growing season with a slightly cooler summer and warm September. This climate resulted in slow, even ripening with a crop just slightly smaller than normal, and the highly desired small berry size. Winemakers across the valley are very excited about the 2007 vintage.

Production Notes:

Our Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from several distinct growing regions within the Napa Valley, including Oak Knoll, Rutherford, and Oakville, each contributing a different expression of the varietal. This wine was fermented slowly at cool temperatures (50° to 58°F), in a combination of French oak (70% of the blend; only 5% new) and stainless steel tanks (30%). Our intent is to preserve and enhance the delicate varietal nuances.

Winemaker Notes:

98% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Semillon, this wine is whole-cluster pressed with 70% of the wine fermented in neutral French oak barrels. No malolactic fermentation took place.
