Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc 375ML 2009   
Sku: 16738

Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting Sauvignon Blanc from some of the finest Napa Valley fruit since 1982. As is our tradition, our Sauvignon Blanc is an elegant blend of several individual vineyard lots throughout the valley. Focusing on grapes with vibrant citrus flavors, we source fruit from various microclimates, including warmer vineyards planted on alluvial fans, which are well drained and have little topsoil. Our preference for barrel fermentation and the addition of the Sémillon grape results in a unique, full-flavored Sauvignon Blanc exhibiting balanced acidity and bright fruit.

Tasting notes
This complex and focused Sauvignon Blanc seamlesslycombines mouth-filling fruit with refreshing acidity. The aromas highlight elements of bright citrus and passion fruit, underscored by pineapple and layers of gala apple and lychee. The tropical aromas are echoed on the palate and given added dimension by the addition of Semillon, which helps to showcase the juicy guava, passion fruit and pineapple upside-down cake flavors, alongside notes of fresh apple, vanilla and key lime pie.

Wine maker notes
From our first Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc blocks to our final red-varietal Estate picks, our 2009 harvest spanned more than two months. Though the 2009 growing season presented certain challenges—from early shatter to late-season rain—attention to detail and site-specific techniques in the vineyards yielded a crop of high-quality fruit. This included aggressive leafing, an early thinning protocol and a heavy field sort to select only the most desirable grapes.

Technical notes
Total Acidity: 0.61 g/l 13.0% abv pH:3.35
