Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 96% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Semillon

Groth 2006 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer Napa Valley microclimates provided grapes that resulted in a wine with a lush, full melon/citrus character in the aroma and in the flavor. The cooler Napa Valley fruit provided a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness that balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging.

The mineral and herb flavors of this Sauvignon Blanc marry nicely with grilled fish or chicken.
