Winemaker's Notes:

Stickybeak Semillon Sauvignon Blanc shows an initial exuberant nose of white peach, freshly cut grass and citrus, with spicy, smoky flint notes beneath. The palate opens with an engaging freshness yet also shows a genrous mouthfeel beneath. Long, deep and quite succulent, the characters of pie baked stone fruit and meyer lemon continue though to the clean finish.

Blend: 72% Semillon, 28% Sauvignon Blanc

About Stickybeak:

Some people might say we’re busybodies or nosey neighbors although we prefer the Australian term ‘stickybeak’. And being Napa based wine industry folk, it’s hard not to be intrigued about the stunning vineyards and regions that surround us. In fact, as inquisitive vintners it seemed only natural that we’d have a bit of a stickybeak in our own backyard to see what we could find.

With a winemaking mate of ours, Wayne Donaldson (a veteran of 30 vintages at well known estates such as Brokenwood in Australia and Domaine Chandon in Napa), and a great roster of growers, we’ve been able to produce wines that not only sing stridently of their origins but also deliver a wallop in the flavor department – not meaning heavy and overdone, but simply long, lingering and wonderfully focused. Wines that invite another charge.
