CADE Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Sourcing Sauvignon Blanc fruit from all over Napa Valley gives the wine great complexity in aroma and flavor. The nose is fresh, with aromas of guava, green apple, lemon, lime, white peach, lemon grass, green melon, and orange blossom. The palate is soft and juicy with flavors of banana, Meyer lemon, pineapple, mango, lemon meringue, cantaloupe, and grapefruit. The wine finishes with a bright acidity, a touch of minerality, and a nice creamy mid palate texture.
Danielle ferments our Sauvignon Blanc with 10 different strains of yeast in new and used French oak, concrete egg, stainless steel tanks and drums. Fermenting the juice in stainless steel preserves the wonderful, varied fruits of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The portion of juice that is fermented in oak barrels and concrete gives the wine a texture and creaminess, balancing the natural bright acidity of the grape.
