Apsara-Sauvignon Blanc-"Rivers Reach" Rutherford, Napa Valley-2013

Sauvignon Blanc
"Rivers Reach" Rutherford, Napa Valley


From a mid-Valley vineyard on the Silverado Trail. Spiked with old vine Semillon from "Tofanelli Vineyard" in Calistoga. Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon: Two grapes that met in Bordeaux and now tour the world, making fruity, floral, fresh, slightly oily, sensual white wine. Smell and taste apricots, lemon/lime, fresh pears, passionfruit and green tea. It's substantial in the mouth, becoming nice and tangy on the finish. Fermented and aged in a combo of steel tank and neutral barrel. 137 cases made. I think a hearty prawn dish, made with flair, is the right match. I found this Grilled Spot Prawn with Pernod, Red Chili Flakes, Arugula, Fennel. APSARA comes from the Sanskrit word for an angelic dancer (see the label) whose elegant movements reflect the key elements in our wine: balance, purity and expression.
