2013 Bliss Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc

 

2013 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is sourced completely from the Rutherford AVA. This wine is a blend of 95% Sauvignon Blanc with 5% Semillon. This wine is best described as luscious. While there is a base of bright acidity behind the scenes, you are greeted with aromas of fresh white peach, melon and juicy pineapple. The Semillon sneaks through to transform the wine and complement the Sauvignon Blanc characteristics. Very enticing and showing roundness on the palate, the finish is clean and refreshing. 

Harvest Notes

The Sauvignon Blanc vineyard in Rutherford is farmed organically and sits in the heart of the Napa Valley. 2013 was a wonderful growing season, starting out about 2 weeks ahead of normal. With warm, sunny weather and almost no rain through the summer, we were looking to harvest by mid-August. After a little green harvesting in early August, the weather cooled and allowed us to delay picking, enabling the fruit to further mature. The Sauvignon Blanc was harvested on September 6th, one day earlier than 2012, beginning at sunrise.
