The fruit for this Sauvignon Blanc was grown both on the Keever Estate Vineyard in Yountville’s western hills and on the Jonquil Ranch, located in the dry eastern soils of Napa Valley. The fruit was hand-harvested and gently pressed, then fermented in a combination of French oak and stainless steel barrels.
Winemaker Notes: “With a slow-and-steady path to full flavor maturity in the vineyards, the 2019 vintage allowed Napa Valley winemakers to evaluate the nearly-perfect clusters again and again, until the flavors were exactly perfect. You’ll experience this in the 2019 Keever Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc, which displays an exquisite, very broad array of aromas. Somewhat deeper in tone than the norm for this varietal, the lifted notes of bright tangerine, grilled pineapple, rose petal, and fresh almonds are supported by deeper, darker hints of chai tea, vanilla, and a faint whiff of river rocks. Consistent with prior vintages, the palate on this Keever Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc is broad and bright, with a lovely creaminess from the sur-lie aging. The signature fresh citrus and pineapple flavors abound in the mid-palate and carry through to the finish. While this very complex Sauvignon Blanc is delicious on its own, it has the weight and structure to pair beautifully with lighter fare (salads, lemony seafoods) and even with slightly richer plates.”
Tasting Notes: Keever’s Sauvignon Blanc is a bold, luscious wine with terrific richness and tons of varietal character. An oak regimen with lees aging helps bring out textural layers, and yet the wine remains bright, focused and absolutely impeccable in its balance. Only 400 cases produced!
