2010 Sauvignon Blanc, Oakville ~
Teaderman Vineyards 2010 Sauvignon Blanc comes from our estate in the heart of Napa Valley’s Oakville American Viticultural Area. Bright Meyer lemon, mango and fig open on the nose, while hints of pink grapefruit round out the flavors. Partial fermentation and aging in French oak impart appealing vanilla, caramel and smoky notes that carry from the aromas over the smooth, creamy palate. Crisp acidity and a medium body allow this Sauvignon Blanc to stand up beautifully to roasted chicken and grilled vegetables.
After gentle hand harvest, we press the Sauvignon Blanc grapes as whole clusters in our membrane press. We then allow them to cold settle in a stainless steel tank, where fermentation begins. When the wine reaches 16??Brix, we transfer it into barrels (20% new French oak) to finish fermenting. The wine ages on its yeast lees for nine months with batonage (hand stirring) during the first four months to re-suspend the lees and encourage a creamy texture.
