2015 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc

We have been making a highly acclaimed Sauvignon Blanc for three decades, and we make it with the same intention as our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Crafted with great care from fruit grown in exceptional soils, it is a serious wine with structure, sophistication, and the ability to age gracefully.

This classically complex and elegant expression of the varietal comes from a who’s who of the finest vineyards in Napa Valley and on Sonoma Mountain as noted below, as well as grapes from our own Spottswoode Estate Vineyard.

Winemaker Notes: Fresh and juicy, with great complexity. A powerful wine that’s layered and textured with citrus and stone fruits filling the palate. Fresh pear and white peach mingle with passion fruit and lemon meringue. The mouthwatering vivacious acidity and complex subtle vanilla and creaminess gives great length to this impressive wine.

Fact Sheet
“Spottswoode, the Novak family’s extraordinary family estate, always comes to mind when I think of who is taking this grape seriously. Spottswoode’s reputation was built on its estate Cabernet, but its white wine is a hidden gem.”
