Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage makes the third release of an Estate grown Sauvignon Blanc from Persephone Ranch grapes. Bursting with aromas of clean citrus, lime and honey. This cool climate style is fruit driven - intense and zingy - this is accomplished by selected picking of the grapes. Both the nose and palate show closely integrated notes of kiwi, lime and gooseberries, with a hint of mineral underneath which evolves into honey as it warms. Suggested food pairing with Peju Tuna melt sandwich, scallops, crab and smoked fish.

About Peju Province:

The love of farming and a passion for wine brought Tony Peju to the Napa Valley. A series of ideas - starting in his birthplace on the Caspian Sea, then France, England and eventually, Los Angeles -- created the Peju's Napa Valley winery. In 1982, Tony and his wife Herta purchased 30 acres of land in the Napa Valley with the magic ingredient - location. Neighboring vineyards in Rutherford included Robert Mondavi, Inglenook and Beaulieu. Situated between Highway 29 and the Napa River, the acreage included a 1900-era house and rambling vineyards, some 60 or more years old. Looking to the future, Tony and Herta have introduced their two daughters, Lisa and Ariana, to the workings of the wine business. Both of the young women are immersing themselves in all aspects of Peju Winery.
