Winemaker Notes

Aromas of ripe melon and papaya greet your nose as you savor this classic Sauvignon Blanc. This wine was fermented in older oak barrels so as not to hide the brilliant fruit character. In addition, the natural acidity of the grapes was retained through the prevention of malolactic fermentation to further enhance the freshness of the fruit.

We picked the fruit extremely ripe to deliver an incredibly big style of Sauvignon Blanc that delivers classic grapefruit aromas with lush mouth feel and excellent acidity. This all adds up to an extremely food friendly wine that is just as enjoyable sipped on its own.

Girard, Napa Valley, California
Video of winery
Thirty years after first planting its vineyards, Girard continues to produce wine reflecting the quality that has made Napa Valley the most famous New World wine growing region in the world. Napa’s rise to fame was punctuated by a renaissance that began at the same time Girard was setting down its own roots.

Today, Girard is experiencing a similar rebirth of sorts. Longtime California vintner Pat Roney purchased the winery shortly after the new millenium. Pat’s career in wine began as a sommelier at Chicago’s renowned Pump Room. Later he returned to his native California, where he ultimately became president of Chateau St. Jean, in Sonoma Valley.

At Girard, Pat continues a tradition of making Chardonnay and Cabernet-based wines. But he is also expanding Girard’s varietal focus to Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, grown on century-old vines that dot the Napa countryside. As it has been in the past, Girard’s goal is to highlight the flavors of Napa Valley and its rich, ripe grapes. A small portion of the winery’s portfolio also comes from grapes grown in Sonoma’s upscale Russian River Valley, where cool weather offers ideal conditions for Chardonnay.

With the right grapes from the right locations, Girard offers a lineup that features both power and finesse—key words in California wine.
