The 2012 growing season was one for the record books. We could not have asked for more perfect conditions and this makes us even more excited to share with you our newly released 2012 Kelleher "Block 21" Sauvignon Blanc.  The aromas are dominated by tropical notes, as well as a hint of stone fruit and melon. Aging was done in 90% stainless steel barrels and 10% used French oak and we find that this combination really enhances the fruit from this St. Helena vineyard. Crisp and clean and in perfect balance.  The fruit forwardness is enriched by the depth that battonage imparts on the wine.

SOLD OUT. Our 2013 Sauvignon Blanc will be available in May 2014. Email us to pre-order. orders@kelleher.com
