Notes from the Winemaker:

The 2022 Twomey Sauvignon Blanc, a blend from two counties, beautifully marries tropical characteristics from Napa County with the floral and citrus characteristics from Sonoma County.

Tasting Notes

With a slightly higher percentage of Napa Valley fruit than recent vintages, the 2022 Twomey Sauvignon Blanc showcases the richness, depth and tropical notes of the warmer growing region. This rich, round texture is balanced by freshness, floral- and citrus-driven aromas from the Russian River Valley where both the Healdsburg Estate and Merino Vineyards are located. Notes of white peach, pomelo and almond blossom give way to a lively core of freshness and energy with a hint of structural framing on a long finish.

Vintage:

The 2022 growing season began with timely, early season rains, recharging the soil moisture profile and setting the stage for strong, even canopy growth. Weather conditions in late spring and early summer were favorable and warm after a relatively long frost-protection season. As summer progressed, temperatures rose and the pace of the vintage accelerated. Balanced canopies continued to ripen, and with significant heat on the horizon in early September, harvest took on a familiar fast-paced clip. The first pick of Sauvignon Blanc was at the Calistoga Estate Vineyard on August 15, and all fruit from the Oakville and Healdsburg Estate Vineyards were in by September 1. Merino Vineyard, always the last estate site to be harvested, was brought in over just four days from September 6 to 9.
