Winemaker Notes

Pungent, enticing aromas of ruby red grapefruit and Meyer lemon rind dominate the aromatic profile. In the background, subtle aromas of lime peel, citrus blossom and ripe kiwi fruit present themselves intermittently. The flavors are vivid and intense, combining refreshing grapefruit notes with Meyer lemon and a lemon/lime burst which merges with the crisp acidity and rich texture to weave a complex, lingering, delightful taste.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

So bone dry and acidic, the tastebuds start whistling at the first sip. Defines the racy personality of Sauvignon Blanc, with a palate-stimulating tang and lime, lemongrass and mineral flavors. The best Wattle Ceeek Sauvignon Blanc ever.

Wattle Creek, , California
Wattle Creek
In March of 1994, a bit of Australia moved to California, and Sonoma County grew even more welcoming and friendlier. An Australian family brought its infectious love of life and exuberance to 56 acres of land just south of the small town of Cloverdale in Alexander Valley. This family, the Williams, also brought with them a zeal and fervor for wine, in particular wines from the Southern Hemisphere.

Led by Christopher and Kristine, the vineyard selection was anything but happenstance. They sought and discovered a piece of land reminiscent of the warm Barossa Valley of the land down under. Here, the perfect union of climate, soil, and geography permit the infusion of the best of Alexander Valley with Australian vitality and heritage of winemaking.

On the heels of the success of their Alexander Valley site, the family added an extraordinary piece of land in Mendocino's Yorkville Highlands. In 2001, under the guidance of a new Aussie winemaker for both estates, Michael Scholz, they released their first Mendocino Sauvignon Blanc. In the next few years the vineyard promises to produce fruit for a Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Shiraz as well.

This was the inception of Wattle Creek, an American winery that derives its logo and name from the yellow blossom of the Australian Wattle tree and its essence and style from Australia.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
