Groth Sauvignon Blanc
92 Points Wine Enthusiasts
"With a hearty helping of 18% Sémillon, this white has a creamy, viscous entry adorned in jasmine. Lemon pith, grapefruit and tangerine present as lush and lengthy on the palate, balanced by fresh, persistent acidity."
Notes from the Winemaker
Groth Sauvignon Blanc is produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer areas give grapes with melon and citrus characteristics in both aroma and flavor. The cooler areas of Napa Valley provide fruit with a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness and balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging. The Semillon is grown on the Groth Oakville Estate vineyard and is harvested with the Estate Sauvignon Blanc, contributing roundness and weight to the mouthfeel.
