Emmolo Wine Company _ 2015 - Plumerai Sauvignon Blanc _ 1.0 L
Region: Napa Valley
Subregion: Sauvignon Blanc
Size: 1.0 L
This reserve Sauvignon Blanc – produced only in a 1-liter bottle – resulted from an experiment in the vineyard, by which we used a brush to remove more than half the grapes on every cluster. A time-consuming and labor-intensive process, this new technique ensured that the remaining grapes received abundant and equal sunlight, enabling us to harvest earlier and achieve a singular flavor profile in the wine. With unusually lively acidity but no herbaceous quality, this wine features aromas of honeydew and baking bread. The bright acidity on the palate is balanced by creamy roundness.
