Galerie Naissance Sauvignon Blanc 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The Galerie collection began with Naissance (French for "birth" or "beginning"), a seamless blend of Old World and New crafted from Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. This flagship wine layers the citrus and mineral notes of the Loire Valley with the peach and tropical fruit characteristics of Napa Valley. Careful vineyard selection and farming preserve fresh acidity and some of the variety's grassy characteristics, creating a complex, modern wine with international appeal.
Aged in French puncheons and concrete, this is an herbal, bright and buzzy white that's medium bodied and complex. Apricot dominates alongside hints of ginger and lemongrass.
