2020 CADE Sauvignon Blanc
*Awarded Gold Medal, Best of North Bay
Our 2020 Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of apple, lemon, lime, banana, pear, white flowers, citrus zest, orange blossom, and cantaloupe. Sourcing from five different sub appellations of Napa Valley generates nuance and incredible layers of diverse flavors and aromas. Sauvignon Blanc from the warmer sights of Pope Valley and Howell Mountain convey stone and tropical fruit flavors, while Oakville and Oak Knoll bring notes of grapefruit, bright citrus, and green apple. St. Helena and Rutherford fruit add peach, honey crisp apple and lemon meringue aromas and flavors to round out the final blend. Barrel fermentations add texture, density, and viscosity while stainless-steel fermentations preserve the natural Sauvignon Blanc aromatics, acidity and crispness of the wine. Flavors of mandarin orange, honeydew melon, crushed rocks, grapefruit, lime, and melon rind delight the senses. A round and creamy palate is balanced by a touch of minerality, and it finishes with a bright, tangy, citrus acidity.
