    Winemaker Notes

    The VV2 Sauvignon Blanc is greenish straw in color and is intense in aromas of melon, guava, grapefruit and fig. On the palate this wine is bursting with melon and citrus flavors. This classic Sauvignon Blanc finishes with crisp and lingering citrus peel notes.

    The fruit for our VV2 Sauvignon Blanc is grown primarily in Rutherford at our Voss estate vineyard in and a nearby block. Our vineyard has a clay loam soil, while the other consists of a gravelly loam. Additionally, we source a little fruit from another distinguished vineyard site in Yountville. The Voss estate vineyard purchased in 1996, contains heavy clay-loam soils, which when combined with this ideal climate, produce grapes of intensely perfumed tropical fruit character. The two other vineyards are on lighter deeper loam soil. This combined with the slightly cooler climate imparts citrus and mineral flavors along with good acidity.

    Voss Vineyards
    In 1994, Voss Vineyards was conceived and founded by Australian vigneron, Robert Hill-Smith, proprietor of Nautilus Estate in Marlborough, New Zealand, and Australia’s oldest family owned winery, Yalumba, in the Barossa Valley. Robert was intrigued by the Napa Valley and saw quality and opportunity in the viticulture around Rutherford and Oakville, wondering whether he could apply some of the knowledge garnered over the 150 years of family involvement in winemaking. Voss owns 42 vineyard acres in Rutherford and produces Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Syrah.

    An extensive appellation producing a diverse selection of good-quality, value-priced wines, Languedoc-Roussillon is the world’s largest wine-producing region, spanning the Mediterranean coast from the Spanish border to Provence. Languedoc forms the eastern half of the larger appellation, while Roussillon is in the west; the two actually have quite distinct personalities but are typically grouped together. Languedoc’s terrain is generally flat coastal plains, with a warm Mediterranean climate and a frequent risk of drought. Roussillon, on the other hand, is defined by the rugged Pyrenees mountains and near-constant sunshine.

    Virtually every style of wine is made in this expansive region. Dry wines are often blends, and varietal choice is strongly influenced by the neighboring Rhône valley. For reds and rosés, the primary grapes include Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault, and Mourvèdre. White varieties include Grenache Blanc, Muscat, Ugni Blanc, Vermentino, Maccabéo, Clairette, Picpoul, and Bourbelenc. International varieties are also planted in large numbers here, in particular Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. In Roussillon, excellent sweet wines are made from Muscat and Grenache in Rivesaltes, Banyuls, and Maury. The key region for sparkling wines here is Limoux, where Blanquette de Limoux is believed to have been the first sparkling wine made in France, even before Champagne. Crémant de Limoux is produced in a more modern style.
