Spottswoode 2016 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

(No reviews yet) Write a Review


Winemaker Notes

Layers of flavor and beauty—juicy and inviting, with a mélange of white peach, guava, and nectarine. A wine of great complexity—there is a sense of creaminess (lemon meringue comes to mind) juxtaposed with a bright freshness that offers lift and vivacity.

Sauvignon Blanc 100%

Critical Acclaim

WW95 Wilfred Wong
COMMENTARY: For three decades, the Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc has been hidden in the cellar. While the winery's Cabernet Sauvignon ranks amongst the world's finest efforts, its white counterpart has been just truckin' along as its top-notch silent partner. One should never pass up the opportunity to acquire this wine. TASTING NOTES: The 2016 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc starts out showing its alluring aromas of dried citrus, ripe melon, and wild herbs. One begins to feel the wine's vitality as it envelops the palate with exciting energy and persistence. The finish is bright, crisp and lasting. Pair it with linguine and clams accented with the freshest Italian parsley. (Tasted: February 9, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

This is a bright and linear white with sliced green apple, lemon and mineral. Medium to full body with tangy acidity. One of the benchmark sauvignon blancs of California.
