    Winemaker Notes

    Vintage: : Cool and long AGAIN AND AGAIN! As with the 1998, 1999 AND 2000 vintages, these two words describe the harvest of 2001. Unlike previous vintages, however, the Spring of 2001 lashed out at the vines with the worst freeze in over thirty years! Growers not adequately prepared for severe frosts were burned (literally) by Mother Nature's attack. Many vineyards lost crop to the killer frost as the cold nights froze the tender new shoots. Spring was followed by a moderate Summer which allowed the grapes to gracefuly mature during the warm months. Agreeable weather in late Fall gave the reds time to soften and develop the color and tannins needed for fine wines. Overall, the vintage appears to be producing a flavorful, crisp wine.

    Winemaker Notes: Our Sauvignon Blanc displays the ultimate characters defined by this variety: vibrant melon fruitiness balanced by a clean, crisp finish. Notes of sweet wood add a rich smoothness to the wine.

    Menu Suggestions: The clean, crisp flavors of Groth Sauvignon Blanc can be enjoyed with many different foods. The classic combination of oysters and Sauvignon Blanc plays up the citrus quality of the wine. The smoky flavors of grilled fish or poultry emphasize the melon flavor of the Sauvignon Blanc. These flavors are especially good when the fish or poultry is served with any tomato or fruit salsa. The crisp flavors allow Groth Sauvignon Blanc to be paired with ethnic foods that have hot, spicy flavors of garlic, herbs, and peppers. Many Thai and Indian restaurants serve Groth Sauvignon Blanc. It acts as a palate cleanser for these strong flavors. Vegetarian meals also benefit from the flavors of our Sauvignon Blanc.

    Groth Vineyards & Winery is a family-owned company with deep roots in the Oakville AVA, 

    home to Napa Valley’s largest concentration of top Cabernet Sauvignon producers. 

    Dennis and Judy Groth made a life-changing investment in 1981 when they bought a vineyard on Oakville Cross Road, in the heart of Napa Valley, with hopes it would produce wines as special as their favorites from the region. It didn’t take long for their intuition to be proven right. Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate gave the Groth 1985 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon the distinction of being California’s first 100-point wine.

    Today, with Dennis and Judy’s daughter, Suzanne Groth, as President & CEO, Groth sustainably farms 165 acres of estate vineyards with the dual goals of producing the highest-quality, most elegant wines we can while caring for our estate for future generations. The winery produces critically acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. The 2016 Reserve Cabernet was ranked No. 4 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2019 list.
