2012 Oliver Sauvignon Blanc
An Ideal vintage. A rare cool vintage in Napa Valley with beautiful temperatures and ideal conditions for harvest. Crops were abundant and it was important to firmly regulate yields to make great wine. Religiously deprived of oxygen in the juice stage to preserve the natural aromatics of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Pressed whole cluster and fermented at very cold temperatures over a two month period in stainless steel.
With an introduction of pineapple, pear, melon, acacia flower, lime, guava and wet rock. The body gives way to bright acid, pineapple, orange, melon with a very vibrant mouth feel and rich pineapple finish.
