The Crossroads Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Oakville appellation is the source of our 2018 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. To impart complexity in both flavor and texture, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks, concrete “egg” tanks and oak puncheons, followed by five months of aging in stainless steel tanks, concrete “egg” tanks, small French oak barrels, oak puncheons and stainless steel drums. The wine was barrel rested on its lees and was stirred every two weeks, re-suspending the lees and lending a creamy texture to the finished wine.
