Rare white from Ghost Block!
The Ghost Block 2017 MorgaenLee Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is a beautiful, elegant wine that exhibits a great balance of aromas and structure. A classic Sauvignon Blanc with perfect varietal balance. A grassy scent with accented stone fruits, and tropical tones. It leads into flavors of peach, melon, orange peel and pear. A full mid-palette weight of tropical and stone fruits gives way to a lasting finish of citrus and minerality. Its long finish is supported by subtle oak nuances.
One of the best Napa Valley Sauvignon Blancs we've discovered.
The Altamura 2016 Sauvignon Blanc comes from the winery's 4-acre 18-year-old dry-farmed vineyard which sits at an altitude of 850 feet. The wine is fermented and aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months resulting in a wine of great depth and complexity, displaying the flavor and textural profile more like a white Bordeaux than a California Sauvignon Blanc. Very limited production of 500 cases.
