2016 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc

We have been committed to producing an exceptional Sauvignon Blanc for three decades, which we make with the same intention as our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Crafted with great care from fruit grown in exceptional soils, it is a serious and expressive wine with structure and sophistication.

This classically styled Sauvignon Blanc comes from some of the finest vineyards in Napa Valley and on Sonoma Mountain as noted below, as well as grapes from our own Spottswoode Estate Vineyard.

Winemaker Notes: Layers of flavor and beauty—juicy and inviting, with a mélange of white peach, guava, and nectarine. A wine of great complexity—there is a sense of creaminess (lemon meringue comes to mind) juxtaposed with a bright freshness that offers lift and vivacity. This is a beautifully crafted wine—expressive, balanced, and sophisticated—displaying all that is best in Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc. A mouth-filling wine of great presence and breeding.

Fact Sheet
“Spottswoode, the Novak family’s extraordinary family estate, always comes to mind when I think of who is taking this grape seriously. Spottswoode’s reputation was built on its estate Cabernet, but its white wine is a hidden gem.”
