YOUNT RIDGE CELLARS 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, Oakville

WHY WE LOVE IT:

One third Sauvignon Musque clone lends gorgeous aromatics to this rare, organically farmed Sauvignon Blanc.

WINEMAKER: The legendary Celia Welch.

  • 100 Point Winemaker
  • 2008, Food & Wine’s Winemaker of the Year
  • 2006, Forbes.com “Top Ten Tastemaker”
  • Inducted Winemaker’s Hall of Fame

 AVA DESIGNATED: Oakville, Napa Valley

WHAT WE TASTED: The Yount Ridge Vineyard is high in natural acidity resulting in a fresh and vibrant wine with expressive aromas and flavors of citrus, peach, mango, jasmine and tropical pineapple. But there's steely flint and florals with a hint of grass, making what we say "something for everyone in this elegant wine." A touch of oak adds creamy brioche and an ultra long finish. Ages for quite a few years too. Magnificent

 WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Lobster tortelloni, Sauce Américaine, Himeji mushrooms, Spinach side
  • Grilled grouper with remoulade sauce and mango slaw
  • Raw Oysters, mint-cilantro mignonette 
  • Thai quinoa salad with lime and chili
  • Argentine Provaleta
  • Bay scallops, pickled green grapes & strawberry relish

PERSONALITY: The absolute best Sauv Blanc on the planet! A rarity for Oakville. Ultra luxury wineries want these grapes. Philippe Melka has pulled grapes from this very special vineyard. Cult wineries want them. You betcha!

TECHNICAL:

  • Aged 6 months in 70% new French Oak
  • Only 150 cases
