Working with our home vineyard to produce the 2018 Rutherford Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc gives us the opportunity to showcase the personality, terroir and incredible quality of this exceptional site surrounding our winery in Rutherford. Our Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is typically very consistent with each vintage and the 2018 is no exception. This wine shows the most tropical fruit expression of the two Sauvignon Blanc wines that we produce at Provenance. The bright, vibrant aromas and flavors are filled with juicy pineapple, high-tone floral notes and ripe, stone-fruit character. The partial barrel fermentation gives the wine a creamy texture with subtle spice and toastiness.
This is hearty, powerful white wine from the heart of the region-a meaty expression of apricot and quince. Meaty and exotic on the palate, it shows a touch of oak and plenty of tropical richness that will please fans of a bigger style.
Spicy overtones add some drama to the core of crisp citrus flavors. Finds harmony on the finish, where a note of toasted almond skin shows up. Drink now.
