2019 LAIRD “NAPA VALLEY” SAUVIGNON BLANC
Tasting Notes from Laird Family Wines, “Inviting aromas of elderflower, passion fruit, melon, and Kefir lime lead the way to a medium-bodied white wine with a refreshing zing of bright acid, followed by flavors of white peach, Asian pear, and lemongrass. The well-balanced nature of this wine is evident in its soft, lingering finish.”
Winemaker Brian Mox fermented 15% of the grapes sur lie, and in neutral oak barrels. The balance was fermented in stainless steel tank, preserving the brightly focused fruit, and the combination of the two methods creates a beautiful tension on the palate that’s simply irresistible. This is one of the best white wines you can get from Napa Valley under $30, and after your first bottle, you’ll want at least 3-more-cases.
