Provenance Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The bright tropical fruit, lemon-lime and mineral expression in this Sauvignon Blanc comes from grapes grown on Provenance's Rutherford estate mixed with other outstanding neighborhood vineyards, It captures enticing flavors by whole-cluster pressing, followed by fermenting and aging sur lie. A splash of Semillon enhances its silky texture.

Our inaugural release, Provenance Vineyards 1999 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, established the winery's style: an elegant yet powerful richness with deep, intense flavors that reflect the vintage and vineyard. With the 2000 vintage we expanded our family of wines to include Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon and Napa Valley Merlot. Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc, our only white wine, made its debut with the 2003 vintage. In August 2002 we acquired the winery known formerly as Chateau Beaucanon, located on Highway 29, for our home in the heart of the Rutherford appellation. After extensive remodeling and refurbishing of the property, we opened our tasting room, featuring a floor made of staves from our own oak barrels, in October 2003. Read less

Offers vibrant lemon-lime, floral and papaya nectar aromas. Hints of lemongrass, gooseberry and minerals - the signature of this grape varietal - add complexity. The flavors echo the aromas, while picking up lychee, melon and ginger spice. Beautifully balanced, this wine combines bright acidity with a creamy texture. Lemon custard nuances mingle in the fruit-intense finish.
