This Sauvignon Blanc has a focused aromatic expression on the riper side of Sauvignon Blanc with grapefruit and guava, while also bringing forth an aromatic return reminiscent of fresh mountain honey. Bright in texture, it combines the fresh, underlying acidity to give length while the aromatic and mineral texture both add rhythm and depth.
Rudd Oakville Estate Sauvignon Blanc Estate
The last in a series of five volcanic landslides created a small sliver of land in Napa Valley and gifted it with the rare combination of attributes necessary to grow high quality Bordeaux grape varietals. Measuring only one mile wide and one and one half miles long, this strip of land winds across the valley floor in the Oakville appellation, through the 55 acre Rudd Oakville Estate Vineyard, and continues north only one-half additional mile. Leslie Rudd was fortunate to become steward of a portion of this land in 1996. His reverence for ensuring that the land achieves its full potential is shared by every Rudd employee and underlies every action we take in the fields as well in the cellar. His vision for the winery was founded upon a passion for the land and a clear intent to build a multi-generational winery with a legacy of excellence.
