New release! The Pahlmeyer "Jayson" Sauvignon Blanc is the latest addition to the Pahlmeyer lineup and a fantastic buy.
90 Points Wine Spectator: "Lanolin and spice details add a savory element to the delicate lemon curd, mandarin orange and lime sherbet flavors, finding harmony and a juicy thread of acidity on the finish."
The 2018 Jayson by Pahlmeyer Sauvignon Blanc reveals bright pear and white peach aromas with tropical notes of pineapple and hints of fresh cut flowers. The palate is clean and focused, with crisp green apple notes and a rich, round palate with wet stone on the lingering finish. Balanced acidity makes this wine a perfect pair for oysters, crab cakes, or lobster bisque.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were hand-sorted and gently pressed as whole clusters. The wine was fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels to highlight the beautiful acidity of the fruit, while enhancing its complexity.
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.
