By allowing our Napa River Ranch Sauvignon Blanc grapes extended hang time on the vine, well beyond their normal maturity, we encouraged the natural progression of botrytis cinerea, a welcomed mold the French call "the noble rot." The botrytis mold lives on the skins of the grapes and beckons a distinctively lush, tropical character. The late harvest grape clusters are picked under strict criteria, and exacting fermentation in French oak barrels is a long and trying endeavor. After patient stewardship, the wine is truly extraordinary with honeyed apricot, ultra-ripe pear, coconut and creme brulée aromas. The unctuous texture is underscored by decadent flavors of honey, fig, vanilla and citrus.
