New release! Hands-down the most delicious Sauvignon Blanc from California we've tried - Do yourself a favor and try this beauty.
Selene wines are produced by Mia Klein who also happens to be the consulting winemaker at Dalla Valle, Fisher and Bressler Vineyards. For her own label, she sources fruit from the famed Hyde Vineyard (Kistler, Paul Hobbs) to produce perhaps our favorite Sauvignon Blanc to date. The Selene 2012 Hyde Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc aromas begin with white peach, pineapple, melon, and tangerine. This wine also has a very floral, blossomy character about it with pear blossom and honeysuckle tones in particular. The flavor concentration has wonderful intensity and impact in the mouth, with that just right balance between rich viscosity and good acidity.
Robert Parker: "One of Mia Klein's undeniable specialties is her exotic, perfumed, seductive Sauvignon Blanc."
One of the best Napa Valley Sauvignon Blancs we've discovered.
The Altamura 2013 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.
Another great new release from Bedrock - limited.
previous vintage 92 Points Robert Parker: "The Sauvignon Blanc is one of the best I have tasted in California. This is highly extracted Sauvignon, with perhaps the vintage’s low yields and splendid concentration giving it that extra gear. The telltale melons, caramelized grapefruit, fig and more exotic fruits are present in this beautifully fragrant, medium-bodied Sauvignon that has a terrific texture and length. It is dry, but wow, what an intriguing and exotic Sauvignon Blanc. Drink it over the next several years...
