Nose

Rich aromas of grilled peach, Tuscan melon and honey tangerine

Palate

Opening clean and fresh, there is a seamless acidity throughout the palate. The mouthfeel is rich and full without being heavy, showing layers of melon, citrus, and tropical fruits along with a subtle savory note with a bright, long and juicy finish.

Growing Conditions

In 1994, the Groth family replanted the Eastern side of their Oakville Vineyard from Cabernet Sauvignon to Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, recognizing the potential of the clay soils there to produce white wines of great texture, depth and complexity. This bottling marks the first Groth white wine grown exclusively on the family’s Oakville Estate. The vineyard is sustainably farmed and became Napa Green/Fish Friendly Farming certified in 2014.

Winemaking

Second-fill Acacia and neutral French oak barrels, stainless-steel tanks, concrete egg

Aging

Three months sur lie aging, three months blended aging

Appearance

This wine is brilliant pale straw in color (like California hillsides in summer).

Food Pairing

The bigger structure of this Estate White wine will accommodate a wide range of dishes. It will pair especially well with a grilled peach and arugula salad alongside salt dry-brined roast chicken.
