Flora Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Napa Valley
The Crossroads Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Oakville appellation is the source of the Flora Springs 2018 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, a vineyard the Komes-Garvey family has farmed for over two decades. To impart complexity in both flavor and texture, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks, concrete “egg” tanks and oak puncheons, followed by five months of aging in stainless steel tanks, concrete “egg” tanks, small French oak barrels, oak puncheons and stainless steel drums. The wine in barrel rested on its lees and was stirred every two weeks, re-suspending the lees and lending a creamy texture to the finished wine.
The Flora Springs 2018 Sauvignon Blanc offers gorgeous flavors of passion fruit, citrus (grapefruit and tart lemon) and green apple, with hints of lychee nut, honeysuckle and spice. The wine has plenty of crisp acidity, yet it has a rich mouthfeel and broad texture that expands into a bright yet creamy palate. Crisp, fresh and fruity, this is a boldly flavored, ready-to-enjoy wine that would pair beautifully with lemon-garlic shrimp skewers, fresh spring pea soup, freshly-shucked oysters or pesto-topped ravioli.
