Winemaker's Notes

The VV2 Sauvignon Blanc is greenish straw in color and is intense in aromas of melon, guava, grapefruit and fig. On the palate this wine is bursting with melon and citrus flavors. This classic Sauvignon Blanc finishes with crisp and lingering citrus peel notes.

The fruit for our VV2 Sauvignon Blanc is grown primarily in Rutherford at our Voss estate vineyard in and a nearby block. Our vineyard has a clay loam soil, while the other consists of a gravelly loam. Additionally, we source a little fruit from another distinguished vineyard site in Yountville. The Voss estate vineyard purchased in 1996, contains heavy clay-loam soils, which when combined with this ideal climate, produce grapes of intensely perfumed tropical fruit character. The two other vineyards are on lighter deeper loam soil. This combined with the slightly cooler climate imparts citrus and mineral flavors along with good acidity.

Learn 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.
