Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 52% Sauvignon Blanc, 48% Semillon

Refined rich luscious style with aromas of nectarines, peach and ripe cantaloupe. On the palate, the mouthwatering flavors of peaches and nectarines are completely filled out with a subtle mineral quality.

This is a unique bottle of wine to be enjoyed now for its freshness and in the future as it develops in the bottle.

Critical Acclaim

"52% Sauvignon Blanc; 48% Semillon. This complex blending of ripe fig, honeyed melons, toasty oak and background grassy and stony notes is as outgoing in its round, slightly viscous flavors as it is in its first nose. A delight from front to back, and one of the most successful blends of these two varieties seen in California, Virtu is a wine that can as easily accompany a piece of grilled sea bass as a savory chicken dish."

It's everything that it states - nectarines, peach with a touch of minerality. It's crisp and fresh with a very smooth finish. Virtu also has some storage life to it because of the semillon. We just had the 2000 and 2001 and it was great. Each time I've had Virtu, my response is WOW.

This wine is so refreshing and crisp, perfect for sipping on a lazy afternoon. We have also paired it with various seafood dishes, such as poached lobster, and it was perfect. We also enjoyed it with an assortment of appetizers and it worked very nicely.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
