Sterling Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa County 2010
Tropical fruit abounds in our 2010 Sauvignon Blanc. Stylistically astute, the wine opens with pretty aromas of passion fruit and orange peel. The flavors are clean and crisp as flashes of citrus grace the warm, tropical guava and honeydew. Lees stirring gives the palate subtle, yet substantial, complexity, balancing the bright acidity with weight and depth. Characteristic notes of fresh-cut grass carry throughout the palate, which finishes with a crisp snap of lime. A lovely, refreshing wine to serve as an apéritif or paired with seafood dishes, such as cioppino or spicy Thai seafood soup.
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.
External Reviews for Sterling Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa County
Light straw in color, this wine offers expansive aromas reminiscent of grapefruit, melon, figs, and pears. Crisp and refreshing in its acidity, the wine has a rich mid-palate and a long, fruity finish.
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.
