Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, CA, 2015 (750ml)


Winemaker's Notes
Exotic aromas of passion fruit, papaya, ginger and star fruit leap from the glass, along with layers of grapefruit and melon. On the palate, a lovely Semillon-driven silkiness provides delicate weight to this wine, while crisp, refreshing acidity and vibrant citrus flavors draw the wine to a lingering finish with notes of Meyer lemon and Kaffir lime.

Blend: 79% Sauvignon Blanc and 21% Semillon

Critical Acclaim

Wilfred Wong of - "The Duckhorn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc is always on my shortlist of wines I have to taste each year. The newly-released 2015 exhibits dried citrus, brown leaves, and savory herbs. The palate's firmness invites a plate of grilled oysters accented with smoky bacon. Drinks nicely now. (Tasted: November 3, 2016, San Francisco, CA) "
