Duckhorn North Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2022
This crisp and savory white wine is a product of California’s northern regions, whose appellations include Sonoma County, Napa Valley, Lake County, and Mendocino County. A small percentage of Sémillon (less than 10%) adds interest and complexity to this Sauvignon Blanc. Fermented and aged in both stainless steel and new French oak, the wine offers ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavors, along with refreshing acidity and a subtle but palate-pleasing silkiness to the texture.
At Duckhorn Vineyards, we have been making Sauvignon Blanc since 1982. Harvested from our estates and elite vineyard sites in California’s North Coast, this rich and elegant Sauvignon Blanc was blended with Sémillon to add depth and complexity. Fermented and aged using both stainless steel and French oak, it offers ripe citrus and tropical flavors, refreshing acidity and Sémillon-driven silkiness.
2022 Vintage Notes
Winter and spring provided ample rain, which allowed the vines to set a generous crop with excellent canopies. Budbreak arrived a little over a week early, and we enjoyed warm, steady weather throughout spring and summer. We began picking Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and some Merlot as early as mid-August, but the first big push began after a Labor Day heat event, when our generous canopies paid dividends, helping shade the grapes. After a busy few weeks, a cool spell allowed the remaining grapes time to mature. To counter the impact of modest mid-September rains, we applied a careful fruit drop, and were equally diligent during sorting. Overall, harvest lasted eleven weeks, delivering wines with excellent concentration, supple tannins, lovely finesse and dynamic acidity.
This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc offers an enticing medley of tropical and citrus aromas, including pineapple, lemon verbena, lime and guava. The palate is lush and lively, combining a silky texture and energetic acidity with fresh melon, citrus, and pineapple flavors framed by subtle minerality throughout a long, bright finish.
