The Inglenook Estate, best known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, has always grown small amounts of white varietals used primarily to craft Blancaneaux, our flagship white wine. In 2011, we grafted some Sauvignon Blanc onto a selection of Petite Sirah vines after experiments revealed that one of our vineyard lots was able to produce a Sauvignon Blanc with unique floral characteristics. This is our third year producing this wine.
The 2015 growing season was the perfect mix of hot and dry in Rutherford, Napa Valley. Inglenook began the Sauvignon Blanc harvest while the grapes had high acidity. Harvest took a short pause to allow parts of the Tank House block to develop further in ripeness. The acidity remained during the pause despite the heat, which allowed the complexity to develop. The unusual combination of intense fragrances and concentration of ripe fruits along with the high acidity brings a unique profile to the third release of Inglenook’s Sauvignon Blanc.
