Hailed as the “aristocracy of American Sauvignon Blanc,” Spottswoode has been crafting this revered wine since 1984. Crafted with grapes from Spottswoode Estate and those from other iconic family-owned vineyards, this wine is fermented in a combination of French oak, small stainless-steel barrels, a clay amphora, and ceramic and concrete cubes. “Pretty and pure with aromas of citrus, white peach, and juicy pear, this beautiful Sauvignon Blanc is layered and complex. Apple clafoutis and floral aromatics invite you in. Rich and textural, this wine perfectly balances viscosity and acidity. Sea spray and salted lemon with some grapefruit pith carries through its long finish.”
Spottswoode is one of those iconic wineries in Napa Valley that have stayed not only relevant but have continued to lead the charge as one of the top Cabernet producers, regardless of all the new wineries emerging in the last 20+ years. With time in the bottle, their wines regularly emerge as a continuous star in blind tastings of older vintage lineups.
