2013 Solitaire Sauvignon Blanc

Carneros, Napa Valley

0000
Price: $23.00 / Bottle
 
 
 
 

 

A very dry, early season brought added concentration to our 2013 Solitaire Sauvignon Blanc. From a diamond shaped parcel within our Carneros Estate, this block has once again crafted a singular wine. The 2013 Solitaire was picked in two passes. The earlier picked fruit was fermented in stainless steel while the later batch was vinted in a concrete egg. The concrete egg aids in lees contact, which softens and enriches the wine overtime. The egg also features thick walls which both hold the wine at a more constant temperature and provide some interaction with the minute amount of air trapped in the pores of the concrete. This has the effect of softening any bitterness and giving the resulting wine a warmer, more unctuous tone. Fresh notes of gooseberry, melon, kiwi and apricots are braced on the palate with shimmering acidity and crisp minerality which serve to lengthen the flavors and let them linger on the tongue.
