At Duckhorn Vineyards, we have been making our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc since 1982. Harvested from our
estates and select Napa Valley vineyards, this rich and elegant Sauvignon Blanc was blended with Sémillon to add
depth and complexity. Fermented and aged using both stainless steel and French oak, it offers ripe citrus and tropical
flavors, refreshing acidity and Sémillon-driven silkiness.
VINTAGE NOTES
In terms of overall weather, most of the 2020 growing season was excellent. Following a relatively dry winter,
budbreak started early, and the temperatures throughout spring and summer were mild and temperate. This allowed
the grapes to ripen slowly, developing pure, vibrant flavors and supple, fleshy textures. In late September, harvest was
impacted by the outbreak of wildfires and the arrival of hot weather. The elevated temperatures gave many vineyards
a final push to ripeness as we worked to bring in the grapes. During this period, we did extensive testing to ensure
quality, excluding any fruit that did not meet our standards. While our meticulous selection process resulted in a
smaller 2020 crop, the wines we produced live up to the Duckhorn name, displaying beautiful aromas, soft elegant
textures, lively complexity and lush flavors.
WINEMAKING NOTES
This luxurious Sauvignon Blanc displays gorgeous aromas of mango, pineapple,
Key lime pie and honeydew melon, as well as fragrant hints of orange blossom
and elderflower. On the palate, a delicate, silky texture accentuates the generous
tropical, citrus and stone fruit flavors, with energetic acidity and undercurrents
of minerality carrying the wine to a bright, focused finish.
