From the man who help put Napa Valley on the map in 1976 when his wine ( the 1973 vintage of Chateau Montelena) beat the big name Burgundian producers in the Famed Judgement of Paris. Miljenko "Mike" Grgich makes this benchmark Sauv. Blanc from select plots that are organically farmed. Ambient yeast / spontaneous fermentation (a portion of the grapes in 900-gallon French oak casks called foudres) with the remainder in oak barrels. The wine then spent six months on its leesin neutral barrels.
Really sings with notes of passion fruit curd, lemon grass, and green apple with a crystal clean finish and ethereal minerality. Not to be missed.
