2011 Quivet Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Tench Vineyard, Oakville, Napa Valley

With the roots of Quivet Cellars being entrenched within the great coastal region of Cape Cod, we found it appropriate to produce a wine to pair with the famous Oysters and Blue fin Tuna 'The Cape' is known for.  2011 Quivet Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Tench Vineyard, Oakville, Napa Valley This opportunity arose with a last second offer to purchase Sauvignon Blanc from arguably one of the best vineyards in Napa Valley.  Planted to 30 year old To Kalon clone vines, the Tench Vineyard sits off the Eastern Oakville bench which has ample drainage created from rocky soils and gentle sloping.

The 2011 Quivet Sauvignon Blanc is amazingly fragrant with pineapple, quince, fig, orange peel and apricot flavors that are focused and intense.  The texture is slightly creamy with details of minerality, spice and clementine and is highlighted by a juicy natural acidity.  A fresh crispness extends to the finish where the above notes dance over the palate.

Enjoy this wine in its youth with appropriate fare and try to keep some for those glorious summer months at the beach.
