Voss Sauvignon Blanc 2007

Voss, Napa Valley, Rutherford Estate Vineyard, Sauvignon Blanc 2007 Today on the first of April, 2009 the citrus is holding steady and the wine retains its freshness – bravo! In the fall of ’08 I noted:  there’s a sense of gooseberries, candied tropical fruits and a little bell pepper. The fruitiness comes through even more so on the palate in a refreshingly dry yet not austere way.

The grapes were picked in mid-August and treated to a 24 hour cold soak after crushing. After that the wine fermented in stainless only. This has been a consistent winner in the ‘pull no punches’ vein of Sauvignon and the brand has been a leader in alternative closures. This is bottled under a screwcap. Cellared and Bottled in Oakville 12.5% and down to $14.49 at Bottle Barn
