Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley Wine Details
Price: $17.00 per bottle

Description: Hall is pleased to release the alluring 2004 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. This wine, selected from two premier Napa Valley vineyards shows intense aromas of pink grapefruit, lemons, and honeydew melon. The palate is rich with texture and weight, showing long, lush, fruit ?avors of pear and melon. The wine has wonderfully focused acidity which provides the backbone for the long, refreshing ?nish, a signature of our Sauvignon Blanc program. This racy acidity provides the perfect pairing for a number of summertime dishes, including grilled halibut, sautéed shrimp and shell?sh of all types.

Varietal Definition
Sauvignon Blanc:
Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California — at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety — and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’. When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the wine world’s darlings. Steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character characterize dry wines made from this grape.
