Napa Valley Vineyards
The Oberon Sauvignon Blanc is distinctive in style because its fruit is sourced from both the Pope Valley and Carneros Appellations of Napa Valley. This combination of multi-terroir fruit and distinctively different micro climates marries bright natural acidity with layered fresh flavors of green apple, tart kiwi, pear and melon. “With each vintage, we want Oberon Sauvignon Blanc to show bright natural acidity and fresh flavors. We also want an underlying richness and complexity that balances the wine and adds fullness and length.” says winemaker Tony Coltrin.
Tony Coltrin set out to maximize fruit expression in our 2017 Oberon Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley. “We used both cold tank fermentation and 33% barrel fermentation to maximize the overall fruit expression. The cold-fermentation in tank helps us maintain the pureness of fruit and aromatics, and barrel fermentation adds a subtle creaminess and length.”
