Winemaker's Notes:

This Sauvignon Blanc is made exclusively from Provenance's Rutherford estate fruit. By pressing the cluster whole cluster and fermenting the wine primarily in stainless steel, they captured the aromas of lemon lime, guava and pineapple. Bright acidity and notes of spice add balance to this wine. Provenance selected a Stelvin closure for the Estate Sauvignon Blanc to enhance the freshness and ensure the quality of this wonderful ready-to-drink wine.

About Provenance Vineyards:

Provenance Vineyards showcases the distinctiveness of Napa Valley's best growing areas for red wines by selecting some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Rutherford and Oakville districts and Merlot vineyards in the Carneros district. The same uncompromising approach also characterizes Provenance winemaking, with the goal of bringing the grapes from these great vineyards to their fullest potential. Starting with its inaugural 1999 vintage, Provenance's approachable, yet cellar-worthy wines display a fine symmetry of substance and elegance.

The word provenance means "origin" or "source." In the art world, a provenance is the record of a work’s ownership, from its creation to the present day. Connoisseurs place great importance in provenance as a guarantee of authenticity. The name reflects Provenance Vineyards' goal of creating fine wines that are works of art.
