Winemaker Notes

Grapes for Twomey Sauvignon Blanc come exclusively from our estate property in Calistoga. With its deep, gravelly loam soils, this vineyard is particularly well suited to Sauvignon Blanc and has a long history of producing distinctive wines from this esteemed varietal.

The 2008 Twomey Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc beautifully combines minerality with fruitiness. It is light, straw yellow with green highlights. The wine has a nose of fresh lime, cucumber and guava with notes of flintiness. On the palate, the wine has wonderful acid balance and well-defined flavors of citrus and jasmine. There is an echo of minerals in the long, crisp finish.

Immediately after harvest, the Sauvignon Blanc grapes were pressed and fermented using selected yeast strains. Fermentation took place in a combination of new, thin-staved French oak barrels, stainless steel drums and tanks. The wine was then aged sur lies for four months and kept at cool temperatures to prevent malolactic fermentation.

Extremely refreshing, with tropical overtones of pineapple and passion fruit to the lemon and Key lime flavors, with grassy highlights and a mouthwatering finish. Drink now.

Twomey Cellars by Silver Oak, Napa Valley, California
2008 Sauvignon Blanc
Twomey Cellars originated with a remarkable vineyard, the Soda Canyon Ranch in southeastern Napa Valley, which the Duncan family – owners of Silver Oak Cellars – acquired in 1999. Planted with the finest French clones in well-drained volcanic soils, the Merlot that is grown there possesses such extraordinary complexity that it calls for a wine of its own. Silver Oak's winemaker, Daniel Baron, developed his passion for Merlot during the early 1980s while working in Pomerol and St. Emilion. He had always hoped to make a California Merlot with a French sensibility, but for many years lacked access to fruit with the characteristics he required. When the Duncan family acquired Soda Canyon Ranch and Daniel realized it was planted with top-flight French clones, Daniel’s long-held dream of producing a Napa Valley Merlot with depth and concentration became reality.

The Duncan Family’s spirit of innovation would lead them to discover new varietals when in 2000, they secured the nine-acre West Pin vineyard in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, legendary for its extraordinary Pinot Noirs. Several years later, they acquired a winery in Healdsburg where the Pinot Noirs are now produced. Twomey is dedicated to producing Pinot Noir that achieves the greatest balance & expression from four top California appellations, including Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley, Anderson Valley and Santa Maria Valley. Twomey’s newest offering is Sauvignon Blanc, a crisp, refreshing wine that originates at the family’s estate vineyard in Calistoga. Today, Twomey Cellars is run by Managing Partners and brothers David and Tim Duncan. Founding winemaker Daniel Baron and Winemaker Ben Cane carry out their vision of making wines that eloquently express their vineyard and vintage.
