Sterling Napa Sauvignon Blanc 2012
"Bright, fragrant passion fruit and floral aromas leap from our Sauvignon Blanc. The palate follows with clean, tropical fruit and citrus flavors, touched with a hint of grassiness that reflects the cool conditions of the vintage. Lees stirring lends depth and texture to the palate, accentuating the notes of honeydew through the middle. Grapefruit flavors add a sweet–tart element that rides the long finish, making this wine a perfect companion to a multitude of summer dishes, such as grilled chicken, salads or light pasta dishes." -Winery
Our iconic winery is perched high above the town of Calistoga on a mid-valley hill. Its stark architectural beauty, state-of-the-art winemaking facility, and panoramic views of Napa Valley from the rooftop deck have attracted visitors from all 50 states for over 30 years.
This wine is vibrantly clear with just a hint of green when held up to the light. Startlingly sharp on the nose with immediate aromas of Granny Smith apples. On the tongue it bursts with effervescent fervor of tangy sour apple and nectarine with just a touch of citrus fruits. It lingers on the palate for quite some time with a lovely long dry finish. I was surprised by the not so positive reviews out there on what I think is a delightfully refreshing Sauvignon Blanc. The Sterling Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc is easy, drinkable and a super fun affordable wine.
External Reviews for Sterling Napa Sauvignon Blanc
Zesty grapefruit, citrus, fig, and melon highlight the Sterling Napa County Sauvignon Blanc, sourced primarily from vineyards in the northern regions of Napa Valley. We cool-fermented most of the juice in stainless steel to capture the vibrant personality of these grapes, and used older, neutral oak barrels for the balance to enhance the wine's silky texture.
