2020 Pine Ridge Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
The grapes for our Sauvignon Blanc come from the Lovall Valley, a hidden gem nestled in the Mayacamas Mountains straddling the border of Napa and Sonoma Counties. The elevation (650 feet), the clay-loam and ancient marine soils, and the area’s coldest temperatures provide ideal conditions for growing Sauvignon Blanc
A light green hue gives notice to the connoisseur of the wine’s careful handling in the cellar. Juicy, vibrant fruit pops out of the glass with notes of nectarine and pineapple, thanks to the four hours of skin contact. Nicely framed by the structure imparted by the oak and stainless steel fermentation vessels, a slatey mineral note balances these mouth-watering flavors with fresh acidity at the core of this wine. Notes of dried grass mingle with the light floral aromatics of a Crenshaw melon as the finish crisply cleanses the palate.
