2019 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley

VIRTUAL TASTING: Join us for a virtual tasting of Groth’s trio of white wines on Friday, October 2!

— 92 pts, Editors’ Choice, Wine Enthusiast

Our Sauvignon Blanc is produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer areas give us grapes with melon and citrus characteristics in both aroma and flavor. The cooler areas of Napa Valley provide fruit with a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness and balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging. The Semillon is grown on the Groth Oakville Estate vineyard and is harvested with the Estate Sauvignon Blanc, contributing roundness and weight to the mouthfeel.

All of the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon were whole-cluster pressed which gives us juice of incredibly high fruitiness and softness. To fully integrate the flavors as early as possible, the Estate Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon were both co-pressed and co-fermented. After pressing and settling, the juice was moved to neutral oak barrels and stainless-steel tanks, put through a long, cool fermentation, and allowed to age "sur lie" for a total of threemonths in barrel. Malolactic fermentation was avoided to preserve the fruit. This pressing, combination of fermentation techniques, and aging program adds complexity to the aromas, flavors, and preserves the bright fruit and lively natural acidity that make this wine so refreshing and enjoyable.
