2022 John Anthony Church Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

In Stock

Tasting Notes:
“A classic barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc from our Church Vineyard estate in the Los Carneros AVA. A seamless, pale-honey hue sets the tone. The nose is up front with papaya, baked peach and tropical blossom, trailed by suggestions of meringue and macadamia. The palate is layered with precision and elegance, showing flavors of ripe mango, guava, crème fraiche and amphora. Zippy acidity softens into a lasting finish. A blend of the Musqué (80%) and Western (20%) clones, barrel fermented and aged in 33% new French oak barrels for enhanced dimension and complexity.”

Vintage Notes: 
The 2022 Napa Valley growing season will be remembered for late spring frosts that led to decreased yields, and for a sustained heat wave that landed in early September. The experience and expertise of the John Anthony vineyard team transcended these events and the 2022 Sauvignon Blanc fruit is notable for its freshness and vibrancy.

I tasted this wine last Saturday during a Wine pairing event with John Anthony himself introducing the wines. What a delight! The aroma of this wine will take you to heaven. The fragrance was so divine, I was afraid to taste the wine and be disappointed. I was not! Tastes as delicious as it smells.
