Rare new Sauvignon Blanc from Rombauer!
Just the fouth vintage of Sauvignon Blanc ever made by Rombauer so it disappears fast. The 2018 Rombauer Sauvignon Blanc is brilliant pale yellow with a bright green hue. It exudes aromas of ripe lime, grapefruit, pear and white nectarine with a subtle hint of fresh-cut grass. The palate is fresh and enticing, as grapefruit, white nectarine and deep tropical notes intertwine making the mouth water. Balanced yet lively acidity lingers on the palate inviting another taste. Boxwood on the finish gives the wine length and vibrant freshness.
Introduced with the 2014 vintage, Rombauer's Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc marks an exciting milestone for Rombauer Vineyards – the first new varietal introduced in more than 20 years and only the second white wine in our 39-year history.
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.
