Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc’s vibrant aromatics contain notes of fresh-cut pineapple, quince, and apricot. This brightness is followed by subtle hints of lemon blossom, beeswax, and vanilla bean. On the palate tart flavors of green apple, kiwi and lime zest are complimented by caramelized grapefruit and honey. This wine was fermented and aged sur lie in 100% French oak barrels for one year. Utilizing carefully selected new and used oak, there is beautiful depth and texture to this wine, delicacy, and finesse. The racy acidity is balanced with a restrained oak influence, creating a Sauvignon Blanc that is ready to drink now but will continue to evolve for years to come.

Blend: 93% Sauvignon Blanc (45% Sauv Musque clone), 7% Semillon

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Sinegal Sauvignon Blanc took me by surprise. I don't recall having tried this winery's wines before, but my palate sure noticed the seriousness of this effort. TASTING NOTES: Packed and loaded with ripe melon, core fruit, and oak, this wine does not hold back from being expressive. Pair its rich delivery with crab Newberg. (Tasted: April 9, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Sinegal Estate, California
Sinegal Estate Winery Video

Sinegal Estate is a family-owned Saint Helena based historic 30-acre property, originally known as the Inglewood Estate. Alton Williams acquired it in 1879 and planted the first vines here in 1881. Over the generations, the estate has passed through four separate families with the family being the fifth family, purchasing the property in 2013. The skeleton key on every label of Sinegal wines represents the importance of legacy and preserving the heritage of these families, as it is representative of the original key that was passed down to us when they acquired the estate.

 Since 2013, Sinegal has been focused on integrating innovation and technology into their winemaking. The state-of-the-art winery ensures total precession - complete with a cutting-edge digital optical sorting machine, custom-built automated fermentation tanks, and a 6,800 square foot cave with temperature-controlled portals.

 Wine is an immersive experience, it captures the story of the land told through the voice of the wine itself. Sinegal is committed to the relentless pursuit of quality, and where tradition meets innovation from the vineyard to the cellar. The stewardship of this historic property honors the legacy of the founding generations, celebrating the estate’s heritage of more than 139 years

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.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm 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.
