2013 Kelleher "Block 21" Sauvignon Blanc
What an amazing vintage of our classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc! 2013 was ideal for growers and we are luck to have 470 cases of this current vintage. Stone fruit, melon, a touch of citrus. Balanced acid. It is a perfect wine to enjoy all spring summer and fall!
The 2013 growing season was marked by warm days and cool nights which were perfect conditions for our newest release. 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% neutral French oak and we find that this combination really enhances the fruit from this St. Helena vineyard. The fruit forwardness is enriched by the depth that battonage imparts on the wine. The nose is bright with tropical fruits, while the pallet is rich but focused by the bright acidity. The wine has three main attributes, fruit, richness and crisp acidity.
