Winemaker Notes

Pale straw in color this 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is made with 100% Estate Grown “Musqué” clone and was bottled at our Chiles Valley ranch. The complex nose is richly expressive blending Jordan almond with lemon aromas, the palate has flavors of lemon cream and guava with a crisp clean finish.

Wine Enthusiast
This is a high-toned white driven by citrus and pear flavors, with a punch of oaky power and full-bodied richness on the finish.

Maxville, California
Maxville Lake is nestled deep in the Chiles Valley District. The land around Maxville Lake was formerly known as Rancho Catacula. In 1844, Governor Manuel Micheltorena gave Joseph Chiles the 8,000 acre Rancho Catacula Land Grant. The land was inhabited by Spanish settlers and farmers who tilled the land into an agricultural area.

In the 1960s, the Edward Keith family purchased over 1,000 acres of the Rancho Catacula Land Grant and turned a portion of it into the Bar 49 Summer Camp. This camp provided children with an opportunity to experience farming, horseback riding, fishing, boating, water sports and arts and crafts.

The first grape vines were planted t in 1974. Today, about 100 acres are planted include Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The volcanic soil these vines are planted in creates a prime growing condition. The Keith’s practiced sustainable farming and saw themselves as protectors of the land. In order to preserve the integrity of the property, the land was placed within the Napa Valley Land Trust. This guarantees the land will never be subdivided and it is only used for agricultural purposes.

In 1996, construction began for the most impressive tasting room and aging facility in the Chiles Valley. The underground aging facility can accommodate up to 2,000 barrels.

The winery was purchased by Maxville Lake in 2014. Maxville is now the guardian of the land. In 2016, they renovated the building and began constructing guest houses. Vintage after vintage, the goal is to create wines that exhibit remarkable consistency of style and elegance for all occasions. Let the land speak for itself through the high quality of Maxville wines.

Sauvignon Blanc

View all products

A crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character, Sauvignon blanc is responsible for a vast array of wine styles. However, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. The variety is of French provenance, and is most important in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. It also shines in New Zealand, California, Australia and parts of northeastern Italy. Chile and South Africa are excellent sources of high-quality, value-priced Sauvignon blanc.

In the Glass

From its homeland In Bordeaux, winemakers prefer to blend it with Sémillon to produce a softer, richer style. In the Loire Valley, it expresses citrus, flint and smoky flavors, especially from in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Marlborough, New Zealand often produces a pungent and racy version, reminiscent of cut grass, gooseberry and grapefruit. California's style is fruit-driven, in either a soft and oak-aged or snappy and fresh version.

Perfect Pairings

The freshness of Sauvignon blanc’s flavor lends it to a range of light, summery dishes including salad, seafood and mild Asian cuisine. Sauvignon Blanc settles in comfortably at the table with notoriously difficult foods like artichokes or asparagus. When combined with Sémillon (and perhaps some oak), it matches well with complex seafood and chicken dishes.

Sommelier Secret

Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
