The Aveta Sauvignon Blanc by Stag's Leap Wine Cellars from the American wine region Napa Valley is a fresh and lively white wine cuvée that combines the Sauvignon Blanc (86%), Sauvignon Musque (10%), Semillon (3%) and Muscat (1%) grape varieties.
In the glass, this wine shimmers in a clear lemon yellow with glittering highlights. The expressive bouquet reveals fresh aromas of matured mandarins, juicy nectarines, lemongrass and a vegetarian touch of freshly cut grass. With a vital and fresh body, this American white wine convinces the palate. Notes of sun-ripened citrus fruits and nuances of orange blossoms merge with the present acidity, which lasts until the long reverberation.
Vinification of Stag's Leap Sauvignon Blanc Aveta
The grapes for this white wine come from a wide variety of locations in the Napa Valley. The grapes are carefully picked by hand from the end of August to mid-September and brought to the wine cellar of Stag's Leap.
The must is fermented at cooler temperatures in stainless steel tanks (52%), oak barrels (47%) and concrete tanks (1%). This wine is then aged for a further 6 months and is aged on the yeast (sur lie) in French oak barrels. The must is stirred every two weeks.
