Notes from the Winemaker:
Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc has been part of the Groth family of wines since our winery was founded in 1982. Over the past four decades, we’ve sourced this variety from some of the best sites in Napa Valley, including our own Oakville Estate, and honed our skills in the vineyard and cellar to produce Sauvignon Blanc that is balanced, refreshing and aromatic — just the way we love it.

This wine is produced from grapes grown on our Oakville Estate, as well as from select grower vineyards representing a range of microclimates in Napa Valley. The warmer areas give us Sauvignon Blanc with melon and citrus characteristics in both aroma and flavor. The cooler areas provide fruit with a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness and balances the rich creaminess from sur lie aging. The Semillon is grown on our Oakville Estate, and it contributes roundness and weight to the mouthfeel.

VARIETAL COMPOSITION: 89% Sauvignon Blanc, 11% Semillon
FERMENTATION: 100% neutral French oak barrels; three months sur lie aging


Tasting Notes:

Sunny lemon-yellow in color with bright aromas of honeydew melon, green apple, pear nectar and beeswax. Crisp and refreshing citrus and melon flavors lead to a long and juicy finish that leaves you craving another sip.

— Director of Winegrowing Ted Henry
