Groth Sauvignon Blanc 750ML 2012    
Sku: 6313

In 1981, Dennis and Judy Groth purchased 121 acres in Napa Valley's Oakville appellation - prime Cabernet Sauvignon land. The wines gained immediate recognition and Robert Parker awarded the 1985 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon the distinction of California's first 100 point wine. The Groths have since purchased another 44 acres in the Hillview vineyard in Yountville. Making great wine takes dedication and experience. Vineyard manager, Ben Benson, joined Groth in 1982. His years of experience at the estate have helped him identify the ideal vines to plant in the each location, matching soil types to rootstock, to grape clone, to trellising. Michael Weis, winemaker since 1994, has more than three decades of experience with Oakville grapes and wines. In addition to their legendary Cabernets, Groth also produces consistently fine Chardonnay, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.

Wine maker notes
"Perfect,classic, abundant" describe the 2012 vintage. Quality and quantity were in great supply in the 2012 harvest. Beautiful Spring, Summer and Fall weather highlighted the growing season. The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer Napa Valley microclimates give us grapes that result in wines with a lush, full melon/citrus character in the aroma and in the flavor. The cooler Napa Valley fruit provides a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness that balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging.

Blend: 97% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Semillon
