Markham 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley (Sustainable Pick – 90 Points)
This iconic Napa expression is intense with a rich mouthfeel. It features toast, vanilla and roasted fruit tones along with ripe, bright apple, melon, lemon zest and tropical notes. The addition of roughly 15% Semillon adds a gorgeous silkiness to the texture. An intriguing classic, it will have good versatility at the dinner table and will work equally well with turkey dinner or grilled fish.
Our estate-grown Sauvignon Musqué allows for a multitude of aroma profiles in our Sauvignon Blanc, while estate-grown Semillon provides a juicy texture and ripe melon character to the finished wine. The result is classic honeydew melon aromas interwoven with pear, jasmine and lemongrass. White peach and ripe melon flavors provide a juicy balance to the mineral notes and crisp citrus finish.
