Voss Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Sourced exclusively from a single, organic vineyard in Yountville, Napa Valley, this Sauvignon Blanc grapes are harvested early in the ripening season for more vibrancy and lower alcohol. They are family-owned Sauvignon Blanc specialists, with over 20 years experience producing Sauvignon Blanc in Napa Valley and many more decades in Australia and New Zealand. They share their name with an explorer, and his thirst for discovery is our daily inspiration.
Fruit from the 2014 vintage was picked over two early mornings in mid-August, then crushed and left to skin contact for 24 hours before being pressed off into five different lots. Four stainless steel fermenters were used to create the vibrant backbone of the wine, while the fifth batch was fermented in barrel to enhance mouth feel and texture.The wine exhibits classic varietal characteristics of lemon and grapefruit on the nose, while vivid tropical fruits flood the palate. The finish is delightfully crisp and lingering. Serve well chilled.
