Freemark Abbey Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley

Freemark Abbey Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley

The vast majority of the grapes are grown in the Yount Mill Vineyard in Yountville, this is an organically farmed vineyard, located in the heart of the Yountville appellation, west of the Napa River. The balance comes from a slightly warmer site near Oakville. Both sites have predominantly rich clay loam soils; Sémillon makes up about 4% of the blend. Fermentation takes place in a mixture of 75% stainless steel and 25% older French oak barrels, with no malolactic fermentation taking place. Generous aromas of lemon and lime, white peach, apple and lemon grass greet the nose; the palate shows more green apple, citrus and melon; it finishes fresh and bright.
