Emmolo Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019 750ML
Emmolo Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Notes from the Winemaker
A translucent yellow hue, this wine features clean, bright scents of wet stone and citrus blossom, with subtle notes of nectarine, newly ripened honeydew, tangerine, and a hint of guava. Entry on the palate is lean, then expands with flavors of lime zest and mouthwatering citrus. A racy acidity adds to this wine's enlivening freshness, while a steely graphite character imparts a final impression of distinct mineralogy.
Reviews and Ratings
90 Points/Wilfred Wong
The 2019 Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a mellow and soft-spoken personality. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers aromas and flavors of dried herbs and tart citrus. Enjoy it with a serving of raw oysters topped with a drizzle of Meyer lemon.
Guided by the idea that “less is more,” this wine is dry and fresh, with crisp fruit flavors and bright minerality. Starting with the 2019 vintage, our grapes come from Napa Valley and Suisun Valley, a “hidden gem” only 30 minutes from Napa that shares a similar maritime climate and produces exceptional wine. In both regions, our farming practices enable us to create a wine that is not overly ripe – while also not herbaceous – featuring low alcohol and bright acidity.
