Accendo 2020 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley
Rare new white from the former owners of Napa's Araujo Winery. One of Napa's best new Sauvignon Blancs.
95 Points Antonio Galloni:
"The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is such a distinctive wine. As always, the Sauvignon here is a wine of phenolic intensity, yet it retains tons of brightness, verve and varietal character. This is an especially fine vintage for the Accendo Sauvignon Blanc. Don't miss it
This beautiful Sauvignon Blanc comes from Bart and Daphne Araujo's new winery, Accendo Cellars
. Heading the winemaking team is longtime winemakers Francoise Peschon and their viticulturist, Steve Matthiasson. The entire Araujo team is back fashioning an even smaller, more deliberate production of wine. The Accendo Sauvignon Blanc offers elegance and sophistication in the glass and drinks like a Graves. On the palate, "a mineral vein reminiscent of wet stone provides structure for the fruit and floral components. Full bodied and round, the wine exhibits great range and definition, with its firm backbone, lively acidity and persistent finish.
