NORIA Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley

Regular price $29.00

Complementary shipping *

Created Especially to Pair with Delicate Cuisine. Clean, softer and smooth, like Ginjo style of 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

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.

TECHNICAL:

  • Aged 6 months in neutral French oak barrels
  • 97% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Gewurtzraminer
  • Only 50 cases available
