2022 Pahlmeyer Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

Our debut Pahlmeyer Sauvignon Blanc comprises concentrated low-yield mountain fruit from a single prized block in Stagecoach Vineyard blended with a portion of fruit from Amendola Vineyard, a tiny hidden gem on the Valley floor in St. Helena. The wine opens with a kaleidoscope of intense aromas: Key lime, Kefir lime leaf, white flowers, and toasted almond. The palate is a tightrope walk of full, opulent texture and bright, buoyant acidity, delivering a deep, complex flavor arc, finishing with a wash of fresh acidity and lingering minerality. Opening notes of Key lime and lychee unfurl to a tropical mouthwatering richness with hints of dried mango, lemongrass, white pepper, and dusty gravel that linger long through the lifted finish. – KV

Fruit was picked at optimal ripeness to retain a brisk acidity. Hand-sorted berries were slowly cluster pressed and fermented in two new heavy toast François Frères barrels and four second and third-year Pahlmeyer Chardonnay barrels. The wine enjoyed seven months of aging sur lie, five barrels left unstirred to preserve fresh, bright aromatics. One barrel was stirred frequently to coax weight and texture. The wine was blended before bottling unfined and unfiltered. Just 131 cases were crafted.
