Waterstone Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2012 is made from 82% Sauvignon Blanc, 18% Semillon
Vintage: 2012 proved to be a perfect growing season in Napa Valley. Near-ideal spring bud break, steady flowering, even fruit set and a lengthy stretch of warm days and cool nights provided textbook conditions for the vines. Optimum ripeness was easily achieved, bringing exceptional quality into the cellar. The wines are showing a smooth balance of acids and sugars, great depth of color, and beautiful aromatics. Yields were near-normal in quantity.
Vineyards: The grapes for this wine were grown in the Nichelini Vineyard in the Chiles Valley region of Napa Valley. The region, with its clay-loam and shale soils, favors a longer growing season with its higher elevation and persistent morning fogs.
Vinification: After whole-cluster pressing, the juice was fermented to dryness in stainless steel, and did not undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine was moved to neutral one-and two-year-old French Oak barrels for 90 days, where the lees were stirred routinely to increase yeast contact and add richness. Prior to bottling, the wine received minimal filtration and fining to preserve the fresh fruit flavors.
Tasting Notes: This crisp, floral Sauvignon Blanc is accented with lemon and tangerine notes balanced by soft herbal flavors. The minimal contact with oak provides some creamy textures that complement the wine’s bright acidity, making this an ideal food wine.
78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17.6% Merlot, 3.6% Malbec and 0.8% Syrah.
The wine has a very rich purple, red-garnet color. Dark red and black fruit aromas like cherry, black cherry, blackberry and cassis, toasted oak, slight vanilla, with hints of maple syrup and allspice.
