Girard Sauvinon Blanc 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright, fresh, clean and crisp. The perfect wine for lighter seafood and chicken dishes, green salads or serve as an Apéritif. Aromatics and flavors of freshly cut green apples, pink grapefruit and gooseberry with a subtle waft of grassiness on the nose. We picked the fruit fully ripe to provide classic tropical, citrus and floral aromas with a lighter mouth feel and excellent acidity. This all adds up to an extremely food friendly wine that is just as enjoyable on its own. 100% Sauvignon Blanc made from three vineyards in the Napa Valley. Our primary vineyards are our own St. Helena vineyard and Morgan Ranch, at the base of Mt. Vaca, which is well known for growing outstanding Sauvignon Blanc fruit.

The narrow, winding road up Sage Canyon leads a traveler to one of Napa Valley's best kept secrets: Pritchard Hill, where mountain wineries such as Bryant Family, Colgin and Chappellet have carved a niche into the steep slopes. It's here that you will find the vineyards from which Girard's 93-point Cabernet was born. Girard was founded 35 years ago at the dawn of New Age winemaking in California. Since its inception, Girard Winery's quest has remained unchanged: to seek out world-class vineyards and produce from them, wines that in every way possible, reflect the breathtakingly rare terroir in which the grapes were grown. On hillsides high above Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon is king. And Girard winemaker Marco DiGiulio lets terroir - or the vineyard - determine his choice of varietals. It's no wonder Girard's Cabernet ripens well on the rugged terrain of Napa's mountain appellations, with views that stretch clear across the valley. At lower altitudes, richer soils are more suitable to growing white grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc and red grapes like Merlot. As a result, Girard has dedicated much of its valley floor acreage to these varietals. Additionally, the winery sources a small amount of Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah from individual growers in other parts of the valley. The Chardonnay in the winery's portfolio also comes from grapes grown in Sonoma's upscale Russian River Valley. For more than three decades, Girard has celebrated its sense of place in the California wine country. With the right grapes from the right locations, this Napa Valley winery offers a line-up that features both power and finesse - the hallmark of great California wine.
