Illumination 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

The grapes were hand-picked and gently whole-cluster pressed, and the juice was fermented with mostly native yeast in a variety of vessels. French oak barrels (8% new) bring a depth to the body and a hint of oak spice while Acacia barrels add a complex floral spice on the nose. Egg-shaped concrete fermenters add richness to the palate while retaining fresh aromas and stainless steel barrels maintain the purity of the fruit. Semillon adds a round mouth-feel to complement the vibrant and tangy Sauvignon Blanc. Lees stirring enhances weight and complexity.

2016 Illumination exudes bright tropical fruit aromas that intermingle with notes of fresh herbs, orange blossom and stone fruit. On the palate, a luscious interplay of exotic Asian pear, papaya, lime, orange zest and a hint of minerality. The finish is bright, creamy and refreshing.
