This bright refreshing Sauvignon Blanc presents with hues of tropical fruits and notes of green apple. Lemongrass and lychee combine with white peach and nectarine as bright notes of pineapple core dance across the mouth. Key lime and guava spring from the palate with a fresh clean finish.
Persephone Vineyard is our 350-acre estate in the heart of Pope Valley, a largely undiscovered grape-growing region in the northeast corner of Napa Valley. The ranch is planted with 130 acres of vines, which includes our Bordeaux grape varieties as well as Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. At nearly 1,000 feet elevation, the area is characterized by wide temperature swings and little fog, which allows for a consistent growing season and produces fruit with rich, focused flavor, and a precise sense of place. Persephone is sustainably farmed, moving towards organic certification.
The 2020 season will be remembered for factors beyond the normal measurements. Here in the valley, it was a warm, dry winter and we didn't start to see rain and cold weather until the end of March. Summer brought very cool mornings and very warm days. The white wine harvest started in early August. While the 2020 Napa Valley harvest proved to be one of the most challenging in history, we are committed to bottling wines of the highest quality.
