2016 Naissance Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc
The Galerie collection began with Naissance (French for “birth” or “beginning”), a seamless blend of Old World and New crafted from Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. This flagship wine layers the citrus and mineral notes of the Loire Valley with the peach and tropical fruit characteristics of Napa Valley. Careful vineyard selection and farming preserve fresh acidity and some of the variety’s grassy characteristics, creating a complex, modern wine with international appeal.
“The 2016 Naissance is a pale yellow wine with aromas of very ripe melon dew, juicy orange, lemon zest, plump pineapple and Asian pear with an intense undernote of fresh cut grass. The finish is long and full but crispy mouthfeel with lingering flavors and acidity.”
