Estate Sauvignon Blanc “Mary’s Block”

2021

Mary's Block Sauvignon Blanc bottle 2020

Through a rare blend of grace and grit, Mary Weber Novak quietly established Spottswoode as one of Napa Valley’s first growth – caliber family wine estates. In 1984, just two years after the inaugural vintage of our Cabernet Sauvignon, Spottswoode began pioneering Sauvignon Blanc – well before this grape was recognized as one of the finest white varietals. It was Mary’s favorite wine. 

With Mary’s enthusiastic encouragement, a unique 1.07-acre parcel was planted in 2000 in the southwestern corner of the vineyard adjacent to the banks of Spring Creek. It was named Mary’s Block in her honor, and we have bottled this special Estate Sauvignon Blanc since 2016. The resulting wine is a pure, singular expression of Sauvignon Blanc from our Estate Vineyard. 

Just 120 cases of 750 ml and 20 cases of magnums of the 2021 vintage were bottled, exclusively for our Spott! members. As you enjoy this special estate wine, please know that 20% of your purchase is donated to the Land Trust of Napa County, a land conservation organization for which the Novak family has the greatest admiration.

Winemaker Notes: The 2021 Mary’s Block Sauvignon Blanc is bright and energetic, displaying expressive aromas of white peach, juicy pear, nectarine, and white flowers along with notes of toasted meringue and fresh vanilla cream. The palate is rich and textural with notable acidity and length. This mouthwatering vintage is compelling and expressive, ready to enjoy now, or later with some time in the cellar.

Our mom loved serving friends and family her favorite wine, Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc. As a tribute to her, we offer this limited estate bottling, made purely from her namesake block in our family vineyard. Please join in our toast to Mary and a life well lived.
