Winemaker Notes

Whitehall Lane is known for a Bordelaise style, fruit forward and crisp Sauvignon Blanc. On the nose, it evokes fresh Bartlett pears, white flowers, Golden Delicious apples, crushed limestone, lime zest, and a touch of brioche. Though crisp up front, the mid-palate offers a medium-bodied texture to the wine. Its flavors include fresh melon, stewed pears, baked apple crumble, nectarines, toasted walnuts, and a hint of fresh croissant. The finish has a beautiful length with fresh acidity and subtle toasty notes.
Blend: 86% Sauvignon Blanc, 14% Semillon

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Like a breath of fresh air, the delightful 2016 Whitehall Lane Sauvignon Blanc comes to the fore with sunshine and ripe fruits both in its aromas and in its flavors. The wine's soft touch on the palate makes it a delight aperitif wine. (Tasted: September 26, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Grass, honeysuckle, yellow apples and pear drops show on the nose. The palate is full and expansive, quite appley but with some fresh acidity and a fruity finish. Drink now.

Whitehall Lane Winery, California
Whitehall Lane Winery Whitehall Lane Winery Winery Image

Whitehall Lane Winery was founded in 1979, but the history of the soil cultivation dates back two centuries. In the mid 1800's, Napa Valley settlers were drawn to the gravelly-loam soils and ideal climate, planting high quality grape vines at the Whitehall Lane Winery site. A barn constructed in the early 1900's for equipment storage is still used today. In 1979, two brothers started the winery and directed their winemaking efforts successfully to Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. They named the winery after the road that runs along the southern border of the property, Whitehall Lane.

In 1993, the Leonardini Family purchased the Whitehall Lane Winery estate. They updated the winemaking and barrel-aging program and introduced a scientific approach in the vineyards. The winery now owns seven prime vineyards that are the cornerstone on which the wines are made. They include two vineyards in the St. Helena Appellation, three vineyards (including the winery) in the Rutherford Appellation, one vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley and one vineyard in Sonoma Valley.

In its short history, Whitehall Lane has developed into a world-class winery. The efforts of the Leonardini Family are evident in the run of accolades from wine publications but are even more apparent in their elegant, beautifully made wines.

Napa Valley, California

The Rutherford sub-region of Napa Valley centers on the town of Rutherford and covers some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyard real estate, spanning from the Mayacamas in the west, to the Vaca Mountains on the other side of the valley.

Inside of the Rutherford AVA, bordering the Mayacamas, is a stretch of uplands called the Rutherford Bench. (These bench lands technically run the length of Oakville as well). Mountain runoff creates deep, well-drained, alluvial soils on the bench, giving vine roots plenty of reason to permeate deep into the ground. The result is wine with great structure and complexity.

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvingons and Bordeaux Blends garner substantial attention for their enticing fragrances of dusty earth and dried herbs, broad and juicy mid-palates and lush and fine-grained tannins. The sub-appellation claims some of the valley’s most prized vineyards today, namely Caymus, Rubicon and Beckstoffer Georges III.

It is also home to Napa’s most influential and historic personalities. Thomas Rutherford, responsible for the appellation's name, made serious investments here in grape growing and wine production between the years of 1850 to 1880. Gustave Niebaum purchased a large swath of land and completed his winery in 1887, calling it “Inglenook.” Today this remains the oldest bonded winery in California. Georges Latour founded Beaulieu Vineyard in 1900, making it the oldest continuous winery in the state. Latour also hired the famous enologist, André Tchelistcheff, a man credited for single-handedly defining the modern Napa winemaking style.
