White Wine by Emmolo from Napa Valley, California. With a pale gold hue, the 2015 vintage opens on the nose with the fresh, light scents of melon and white peach. A flintiness comes through on the palate-evoking the impression of a first summer rain-and an initial tartness carries throughout. Delicate flavors, along with the wine’s minerality, build toward a lingering finish, crisp and dry and calling you back for another refreshing sip. This reserve Sauvignon Blanc resulted from an experiment in the vineyard, by which we used a brush to remove more than half the grapes on every cluster. A time-consuming and labor-intensive process, this new technique ensured that the remaining grapes received abundant and equal sunlight, enabling us to harvest earlier and achieve a singular flavor profile in the wine. With unusually lively acidity but no herbaceous quality, this wine features aromas of honeydew and baking bread. The bright acidity on the palate is balanced by creamy roundness.
