2013 Sauvignon Blanc, Tench Vineyard

This wine is very fresh and aromatic. The nose delivers expressions of gooseberry, cassis bud, a touch of lemon grass with hints of minerality, sweet anis, and a light, delicate smokiness to finish. The mouthfeel is a perfect balance of creaminess and acidity. In addition to the fruity notes on the palate, there is a light spiciness (nutmeg) and a hint of cookie dough. The very long finish leaves the mouth watering for more.

This Tamber Bey Sauvignon Blanc is from a sourced vineyard in the eastern bench of the Oakville Appellation in Napa valley, noted for it’s rocky and mineral rich soils. Winemaker Frederic Delivert developed a unique aging and barrel program for this wine, aging 58% of the wine for six months in both Oak and Acacia wood barrels and the other 42% in stainless steel. The use of new Acacia wood barrels respects the elegance of the Sauvignon Blanc fruit, and it brings a unique character feeling to the palate.
