Sterling Vinyards Napa Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Bright, fragrant passion fruit and floral aromas leap from our 2011 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.
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.
Not bad but nothing special from this Napa sauvignon blanc. A bit on the lighter side with lemon, slight grapefruit and a bit of acidity.

Free Shipping on this Case! The Sterling Vineyards winemaking team believes that our wines should express true varietal character. We craft each wine with this in mind, choosing gentle techniques tailored to bring out the aromas and flavors that each grape variety.
With its clean, grassy scent, this sauvignon nods toward New Zealand. It’s more than just green, offering up sunny flavors of passion fruit and apricot. A definite crowd-pleaser.
This gets the job done with classic varietal flavors of lemon, lime and savory green grass, as well as tart acidity to get those tastebuds watering. There’s an off-dry taste of honey, but the wine is basically dry.
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.
