Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Alluring and complex, with a sensuous offering of tropical fruits, white flowers and subtle spice. The nose starts modestly but grows with ripe lemon, white peach and orange blossom followed by notes of toast and white pepper. On the tongue, lemon bursts forward with pineapple and other tropical fruit, with undertones of vanilla. The finish is bright and zingy and mellows with vanilla and subtle spices in its length.

Winemaking

Director of Winemaking Harry Hansen was raised in nearby Sonoma County. “One of my earliest memories of wine was the gallon jug of red wine that we always had at home. I would go with my father to a local winery, maybe in Kenwood or Healdsburg, to refill that jug and chit-chat with the winery proprietors. The aromas of those wines were always something attractive, somehow mysterious, but always memorable.” Harry joined Sterling Vineyards and relocated to Napa Valley just before the 2011 Harvest. “The opportunity to join such a respected Napa Valley winery is exciting and a fantastic next step in my winemaking career. Sterling Vineyards is making some wonderful wines, and I look forward to taking that next step up in quality and reputation.”

Vintage

Early season rains brought yields back to normal levels this year, mitigating the extended drought that afflicted most of California over the previous few years. A cool spring resulted in normal timing for bud break, in late March. Temperatures remained fairly cool in May and June, but high temperatures in July and September triggered a mid-month start to harvest. Quality was solid for the vintage overall, with little impact from Fall wildfires since most fruit was already harvested and in barrel.

Vineyards

We crafted this wine from some of our finest Sauvignon Blanc blocks, primarily from our Calistoga estate vineyards. Located at the northern end of Napa Valley, these vineyards experience warm days with a cool snap each evening. Perfect for this varietal, these conditions encourage a lush, ripe character and fragrant aroma development. The Viognier was sourced from the famous Robert Young Vineyard, located in the north central Alexander Valley of Sonoma County.
