Pale yellow with a touch of a green hue. Bursting with lively flavors of pink grapefruit, lime, and honeyed apricot with a warm note of vanilla on the finish. The wine is fresh and lively on the palate, allowing the lime to shine while the bright acidity makes for a mouthwatering finish that keeps you coming back for more.
Inspired by the wine movement of the 1970s in Napa Valley, Koerner and Joan Rombauer entered the wine business in 1976, then launched Rombauer Vineyards in 1980. As stewards of the land, the Rombauers have strived to produce the best wine an appellation, terroir and climate will achieve. As the second generation takes over, they are dedicated to continuing their parents’ vision.
Picked at night, the grapes were gently
whole cluster pressed while the fruit was
still cool. The majority of the
juice was fermented in stainless steel
tanks, while the remainder fermented in
a combination of French oak barrels and
concrete tanks, imparting weight and
texture to the finished wine. The wine was
bottled with a screw cap closure to
preserve the freshness and vibrancy found
in this Sauvignon Blanc. Storage and aging varied, 86% stainless steel tanks, 10% neutral French oak, 4% concrete tanks.
Pairs well with shellfish, vegetarian dishes, goat cheese, salads, and vegetables.
