Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Aveta Sauvignon Blanc 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Stag's Leap Wine Cellars|
This has 10% Sauvignon Musqué, 3% Sémillon and 1% Muscat Canelli. Together, the grapes provide an experience of floral melon, stone fruit and white flower, a pungent nuttiness contributing additional complexity. The midpalate is steely and high toned in citrus.
Blended of 86% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sauvignon Musque (a clonal variant of Sauvignon Blanc), 3% Sémillon and 1% Muscat Canelli, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Aveta rocks up with vibrant lemon zest, yuzu and green mango scents plus a touch of wild sage. Medium-bodied with plenty of zippy freshness, it finishes on an herbal note.
