Sterling Vineyards Napa Sauvignon Blanc 2012 750ML    
Sku: 21213

Sterling Vineyards sources wines of exceptional quality from the staggering slopes of Diamond Mountain Ranch, the flat valley floor of Three Palms Vineyard, and many other diverse terroirs throughout Napa Valley and other select California regions. The Sterling Vineyards winemaking team believes that our wines should express true varietal character. We craft each wine with this in mind, choosing gentle techniques tailored to bring out the aromas and flavors that each grape variety develops in the terroir it likes best. The resulting wines have exceptional quality that shines with intriguing complexity.

Tasting notes
Zesty grapefruit, citrus, fig, and melon highlight the Sterling Napa County Sauvignon Blanc, sourced primarily from vineyards in the northern regions of Napa Valley. We cool-fermented most of the juice in stainless steel to capture the vibrant personality of these grapes, and used older, neutral oak barrels for the balance to enhance the wine's silky texture.

Wine maker notes
We collected grapes from several microclimates in Napa, building depth from the myriad of flavors and aromas. We used our Calistoga fruit to form a ripe foundation, accented by lime peel and lemon meringue. Pope Valley, with its hotter days and colder nights, gave pink grapefruit and citrus flavors. In this vintage, we included a touch of fruit from Mendocino, which rounded out the blend with floral and melon notes. By combining these regions, we captured the breadth and complexity of this varietal. The grapes for this wine were harvested and placed whole cluster into the press. This gentle technique, which prevents skin bruising and breakage, preserved the intensity and mouthfeel of the fruit. To further entice the varietalís delicate flavors forward, we placed a majority of the fruit in stainless steel for a long, cool fermentation. A small amount was barrel fermented in seasoned oak with regular batonnage. This warmer fermentation added dimensions of aromatics and flavors.

Food pairing
Pair this inviting Sauvignon Blanc with a variety of seafood, such as seared scallops or roasted white fish.
