2016 Rombauer Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

Spritely and tingly

2016 Rombauer Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

Rombauer hand-picked its 2016 Sauvignon Blanc at 23° Brix, then whole cluster pressed it and fermented it in  90 percent stainless tank and 10 percent neutral French oak barrels. The wine aged for three months prior to the final assemblage.

It’s a spritely wine, a little spritzy at first and tingly with lime peel and citrus. It’s not as effusively green fruited and musky as some New World Sauvignon Blanc, and the relative restraint makes it food friendly. It’s also a good value for Napa Sauv Blanc. Pair it with seafood, salads, aïoli, fresh cheeses.
