A fantastic new boutique Sauv Blanc made by famed winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown under the boutique Riverain label. This single-vineyard, single-varietal Sauvignon BLanc is perfection! Limited.
This wine invokes A fresh Silex Pouilly Fume from Didier Dageneau, one of the best Sauivignon Blancs in the world; Incredibly long, mouth-coating finish and amazing acidity here. Although, no flinty notes in this one. Those big "steely," fruit aromas ( gooseberry, lemon and lime) punch you right in the nose. This is one of the most exciting Sauvignon Blancs we've tasted in a long time from the Master himself, Thomas Rivers Brown. Only 70 6-packs were made. Don't miss this inaugural beauty!
From the winery: "After a 10-year friendship with Tom Gamble of Gamble Family Vineyards, we finally convinced Tom to sell us some highly sought-after fruit from his beautiful vineyard in Yountville. Having the best fruit combined with Thomas Brown’s winemaking skills, we are thrilled to introduce you to our second vintage of Riverain Sauvignon Blanc!"
One of the best Napa Valley Sauvignon Blancs we've discovered, from one of our favorite Napa producers Altmura.
The Altamura 2019 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.
