Sterling Vinyards Napa Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.

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.

With aromas of peaches, nectarines, melons and grapefruits, this wine also has touches of lemongrass, mint, kiwi and slate. The palate is pleasantly full with ripe and crisp fruit and a balanced acidity.

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.

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.
