    Winemaker Notes

    Our 1999 Merlot displays a brilliant red color and aromas of ripe plum and dried cherries. Underneath this layer of fruit, the oak gives an influence of cedar and vanilla. On the palate the wine has silky texture and soft tannins that allow the fruit to shine through. With additional bottle age this wine will develop another dimension with notes of tobacco and leather.

    At Voss we have over 20 years experience producing quality Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc and multiple decades of experience producing Sauvignon Blanc in Australia and New Zealand. As a Sauvignon Blanc specialist we have the luxury of total focus in vineyard and winery practicing minimal intervention. A single sku sourced from a 100% certified single vineyard with a single focus on producing high quality wine reflective of region and remaining true to the wonderfully pure aromatics and texture of Sauvignon Blanc. The Voss Sauvignon Blanc style is crafted for freshness, vibrancy, lower alcohol, texture and length on the palate. The taste of the wine has a direct link to the vineyard and the way the wine is carefully nurtured and protected. Voss Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is a single vineyard offering from the Yountville Appellation of California. Planted in 1978, the Morgaen Lee Vineyard has been farmed organically since 1986, minimal intervention ensures the purity of place is prominent in our wine. The Voss style ensures that it is one of the earliest picked vineyards in the region, making our wine one of the first releases from the new vintage each year. Our traditional night harvesting during the cool of the early morning helps to retain the vibrant Sauvignon Blanc aromas and flavors. The grapes go through “skin contact” for 24 hours before pressing, which amplifies the intense fruit flavors from the vineyard and helps to develop a lovely texture on the palate. The juice is fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks over three weeks with selected yeasts that further enhance the flavors. 10% of the wine is placed in barrel, (5% new French oak, 5% older French oak) for four months to add texture to the wine and offset some of the austere characters. The remaining 90% is stainless steel tank fermented. After racking and blending, the wine is bottled at Napa Wine Company using Stelvin screw cap closures.

    Napa Valley

    Red Wine

    Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

    Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
