Flora Springs Soliloquy 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The consensus here at the winery is this - our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is the best Sauvignon Blanc we have ever made! Always unique to the Napa Valley landscape, we pride ourselves in crafting Sauvignon Blanc that exhibits not only bright fruit and acidity, but refined minerality as well. It starts in the vineyards; we specifically planted both our proprietary Soliloquy and Sauvignon Musque clones to give us those elusive flavors of melon and white peach. Following fermentation the wine is sur lees aged for eight months in three different vessels: concrete, stainless steel, and stainless barrels. After nearly two decades of experimentation, we have found this combination enhances the bright acidity, bouquet, and minerality unique to this vineyard site. The sur lees aging ties each of these components together, creating a long, silky finish on the palate. The result is a "Soliloquy" in perfect harmony!

Soliloquy is a perfect introduction to the wines of Flora Springs. It exemplifies our understanding of tradition, devotion to innovation, and responsibility to our stewardship of over 650 acres of sustainably-farmed vineyards in Napa Valley.
