Selene Sauvignon Blanc Hyde Vineyards 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas have lots of concentrated fruit; white peach, nectarine, meyer lemon, asian pear, and honeydew melon, along with vanilla bean crème brulee and sage honey. Flavors in the mouth have very good impact and intensity, mirroring the qualities found in the nose, with a fine acidity and a long, viscous finish.

Selene Wines is a tiny producer of hand-crafted Napa Valley wines. Selene's wines are the personal winemaking expression of Mia Klein, a consulting winemaker. Mia Klein received her degree in Enology from U.C. Davis, and worked her way up from the cellar to assistant winemaker and then to winemaker. She worked at Chappellet and Robert Pepi. She then began her consulting career for wineries like Dalla Valle, Spottswoode, Araujo and Viader. Not long after she began consulting, she started Selene Wines. The Selene name comes from Greek mythology. There are three goddesses associated with the moon in this mythology; Artemis, the maiden goddess of the waxing moon, Selene, the mother goddess of the full moon, and Hecate, the wise crone goddess of the waning moon. Selene's output is exclusively focused on the Bordeaux varietals that thrive in great Napa Valley vineyards. Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc have been produced since 1991 and 1992 respectively. Cabernet Sauvignon and a Bordeaux blend (based on Cabernet Franc) called ‘Chesler’ have been produced since 2002. Chesler is a tribute to Mia’s mom, Eileen Chesler, and sports a label with her picture from the late 1940’s. Read less
