Winemaker Notes

The 2005 Sauvignon Blanc marks the first vintage of 100 percent estate-grown fruit from the vineyards surrounding the winery. Grapes are all handpicked and pressed without crushing and destemming to give a fresh and clean distinctive characteristic. Cold fermentation in a high percentage of stainless steel barrels allows us to capture and display the zesty and fragrant flavors in the bottle. While a subtle textural richness is added by using a small percentage of new oak barrels, the fruit-forward nature is maintained.

"A delightful 2005. A supple, sumptuous, caressing style, with a silky texture and layers of rich yet elegant lemon-lime, ginger, pear and hazelnut. Beautifully balanced. Deep yet subtle. Refreshing, lively and persistent. Drink now."

As their name suggests, the pedigree of Provenance wines is of utmost importance. They go straight to the source for the highest quality fruit in the Napa Valley, forging enduring relationships with the region’s top wine grape producers. Their winemakers are purists, relying on the finest winemaking traditions to extract elegant, powerful wines that express their premium vineyard origins rather than the winemakers’ interventions..

One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism, the Napa Valley was responsible for bringing worldwide recognition to California winemaking. In the 1960s, a few key wine families settled the area and hedged their bets on the valley's world-class winemaking potential—and they were right.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980s, when producers scooped up vineyard lands and planted vines throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, and today Napa is home to hundreds of producers ranging from boutique to corporate. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Napa whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that claim specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil. Farthest south and coolest from the influence of the San Pablo Bay is Carneros, followed by Coombsville to its northeast and then Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford. Above those are the warm St. Helena and the valley's newest and hottest AVA, Calistoga. These areas follow the valley floor and are known generally for creating rich, dense, complex and smooth reds with good aging potential. The mountain sub appellations, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs, include Stags Leap District, Atlas Peak, Chiles Valley (farther east), Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain District and Diamond Mountain District. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from a lot of time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
