Drink now through to 2022. Serve well chilled.

Duckhorn have been making one of Napa Valley’s finest expressions of Sauvignon Blanc since 1982 and this breathtaking bottle really demonstrates what that can be achieved with years of experience and a talented winemaking team. Duckhorn carefully selects all of the grapes that go into this wine from their own estates and the prime vineyards of their grapegrowing partners in Napa Valley.

These premium grapes are then fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels to both showcase the pure varietal character of the Sauvignon Blanc and to add extra body and complexity. Duckhorn also blends a small quantity of Semillon with the Sauvignon Blanc to contribute depth of flavour and a silky smooth texture on the palate.

The result is a stunning white wine which explodes with intense papaya, melon and citrus aromas which transform into ripe peach, lime and passionfruit flavours with the first sip. There’s a bright, refreshing acidity on the palate which is nicely balanced by the medium body, hints of flinty minerality and very long finish. Thanks to the poise and elegance of this wine, the Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc is a fabulous choice to serve as an aperitif before a special dinner or as an accompaniment to pan-fried fish, light summer salads or a generous cheese platter.
