NORIA Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley

 *Complimentary ground shipping on 3 or more bottles* USE CODE VINO.

Created Especially to Pair with Delicate Cuisine and Japanese cuisine. To pair with fresh ingredients to bring out the lively flavors of the wines. . Clean, softer, vibrant, fruity and smooth, like Ginjo style of sake - very polished rice, a bit more modern than classic Junmai style sake.

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Bevill Vineyard is the coolest part of the Russian River AVA
  • Grapes mature slowly for supple mouth feel but great acidity
  • Nori only chooses sustainably farmed vineyards
  • Very limited production in America

 WINEMAKER: Nori Nakamura: Larsen Family, Artesa, Silenus, Jamieson Ranch, Pine Ridge

WHAT WE TASTED: Brilliant, light to medium straw color. With 3% gewurtzraminer, a lovely blossom of delicate fruit hits the nose with bright aromas of grapefruit, lime, pear, a hint of lychee, orange zest, bay leaf, flint stone, lemon grass, and pistachio. Yes, all that! Light kiss of neutral oak adds a supple mouth feel. Very long finish with juicy citrus. This is not grassy Sauv Blanc.

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Japanese tempura
  • Yellowtail and white fish sushi
  • Poached chicken breasts with mixed greens and creamy herb dressing
  • Lobster and caviar dumplings, lobster consomme

PE­­RSONALITY:  NORIA means water wheel in Spanish, which represents positive elements of life such as water, nature, flow, and energy. Nori and Maria are a darling couple focused 100% on this niche winemaking - fruity, smooth and elegant, like sake. The grapes are brought to Napa and handcrafted in small lots. Nori always chooses single vineyards to bring out pure flavors and sense of place.

TECHNICAL:

  • Aged 6 months in neutral French oak barrels (40% and stainless (60%)
  • 97% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Gewurtzraminer
  • Only 50 cases available
