Product Info

TASTING NOTES:

 

Sourced from sites in Oak Knoll, Calistoga and an area northeast of Napa itself called Wooden Valley. It’s a quintessential Napa Sauvignon Blanc, with grapefruit pith, mango and papaya aromas and an oily, supple palate with a fresh, grassy and tropical finish. It was fermented and aged for six months in 70% French oak, some acacia barrels and the balance in stainless steel. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028

-Decanter, 91 pts

 

Grassy, citrus-driven and light, this is a fresh, focused white wine, with underlying complexity and subtle weight. The herbal components work well against the crisp, balanced fruit elements of peach and apricot.

-Wine Enthusiast, 90 pts

 

Made up of 92% Sauvignon Blanc and 8% Sauvignon Musqué (a clonal variant of Sauvignon Blanc), the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Aveta delivers bold notes of wild thyme, yuzu zest and lime leaves with a core of green apples and gooseberries. Medium-bodied and refreshing, with energetic citrus and herbal flavors, it finishes long with a white pepper note coming through.

-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90 pts

 

A clean and gentle sauvignon blanc with sweet passion fruit richness, this has enough acidity to work with briny oysters.

-Wine & Spirits, 90 pts

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

The 2018 AVETA Sauvignon Blanc offers an expressive nose of tangerine, papaya, guava, orange blossom, pineapple and lemon grass. The wine has bright acidity and a flavorful mid-palate that leads to a long finish filled with orange zest and kiwi flavors.
