2021 CADE Sauvignon Blanc
Our 2021 Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of guava, green apple, lemon, lime, white peach, lemon grass, green melon, and orange blossom. In the palate are flavors of citrus, banana, Meyer lemon, pineapple, mango, lemon meringue, cantaloupe, and grapefruit. The wine finishes with a bright acidity, a touch of minerality, and a nice creamy mid palate texture. Sourcing Sauvignon Blanc fruit from all over Napa Valley gives the wine great complexity in aroma and flavor. Fermenting the juice in stainless steel preserves the wonderful, varied fruits of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The small portion of juice that is fermented in new French oak barrels gives the wine a bit of texture and creaminess which helps balance the natural bright acidity of the grape. The addition of Semillon brings acidity, minerality, and a touch of lemon grass to the wine. The Viognier adds the orange blossom, cantaloupe, and viscosity to the wine.
