Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc displays classic varietal characteristics of lime and grapefruit zest, with a hint of guava. On the palate, this wine delivers a delightful combination of bold fruit flavors and crisp, lingering finish. The wine shows a lovely fullness in the palate from the skin contact before pressing and the addition of a small percentage of wine that was barrel fermented, resulting in a lingering finish that is bright and crisp.

About Voss Vineyards:

In 1994, Voss Vineyards was conceived and founded by Australian vigneron, Robert Hill-Smith, proprietor of Nautilus Estate in Marlborough, New Zealand, and Australia’s oldest family owned winery, Yalumba, in the Barossa Valley. Robert was intrigued by the Napa Valley and saw quality and opportunity in the viticulture around Rutherford and Oakville, wondering whether he could apply some of the knowledge garnered over the 150 years of family involvement in winemaking. Voss owns 42 vineyard acres in Rutherford and produces Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Syrah.
