Veeder. Each vintage, they are proud to select fruit from the best sites ranging from mountaintop Cabernet Sauvignon to valley floor Sauvignon Blanc to reflect wines that are authentically Napa.
With fruit sourced from a special vineyard in St. Helena, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc has a vibrant nose with citrus zest aromas, melon and tropical fruits. On the palate, zingy acidity is balanced by tangerine, kiwi and lime flavours with a hint of honeydew melon. A refreshing balance of acidity and fruit linger on the crisp clean finish.
