Groth Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer Napa Valley microclimates give us grapes that result in wines with a lush, full melon/citrus character in the aroma and in the flavor. The cooler Napa Valley fruit provides a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness that balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging. “Mellow” is a great word for the white grape harvest in 2009. Long, steady periods of moderate temperatures ripened the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes in such a way that high sugars were not an issue. The lack of excessive heat and heat spikes allowed us to make wines at more moderate alcohols while still retaining a tremendous amount of fruitiness and acidity. A great year for whites!

One of my favorites. My dad brings almost 20 bottles with us on our 3-week vacation to Aruba every year. Tastes great with fresh fish!

Pretty good price for a bone-dry, crisply elegant Sauvignon Blanc with such good flavor. It's citrusy in limes and grapefruits, with richer notes of figs and melons, and finishes with a scour of spice. S.H. Wine Enthusiast. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from California in USA. 2009 Groth Sauvignon Blanc 750ml

Grown in a cooler microclimate of Napa Valley, this Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing with aromas of melon and citrus. A richness results from aging on its lees. Drink on its own or with many different types of fare.
