Napa Cellars Sauvignon Blanc

2014 Napa Cellars Sauvignon Blanc presents alluring aromas of green apple, spring grass, melon, and passion fruit followed by white peach and honey tones. Full and lively on the palate, flavors of guava, lemon, floral notes and subtle hints of lime complement a crisp and bright acidity. The body has a round mouthfeel and the refreshing finish is clean with beautiful minerality. Winemaker, Joe Shirley recommends pairing this Sauvignon Blanc with sea bass lightly drizzled with olive oil and sea salt or tomato and cucumber gazpacho topped with basil, dill and goat cheese.

Additional Information

The same year that Napa was granted the status of agricultural preserve, self-made man Charlie R. Woods founded Napa Cellars Winery on five and a half acres of prime Oakville soil. In the 1970s, he built a geodesic dome there to store barreled wine, and he concentrated on making reds, in particular Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery changed hands a number of times before being purchased in 1996 by Koerner Rombauer and Rich Frank. That’s when Napa Cellars winery earned their reputation for rich, buttery Chardonnay—a style that was becoming popular in the United States at the time. A decade later, the Trinchero family was looking for a winery property that would capture the essence of Napa. Napa Cellars, with its ideal Oakville location and fame for luscious Chardonnay and authentic Napa reds, was the obvious choice. Winemaker Joe Shirley came on board a year later, in 2007. He has since introduced French oak to our Chardonnay for a more balanced and contemporary style of wine. Though Napa Valley is small—30 miles long and only a few miles across as its widest point—its varied microclimates and soils make it possible to successfully grow a variety of wine grapes. That gives Napa Cellars the luxury to choose the best fruit for each wine they make without ever having to look beyond the Napa Valley.
