About Altamura 2013 Sauv Blanc, Napa Valley

Altamura Vineyards established in 1985 by Frank and Karen Altamura, is the only winery in Wooden Valley, located within the Napa Valley appellation. Napa natives Frank and Karen have a decidedly hands-on approach to every step of the growing and winemaking process. Thus, a natural production limit is established and the wines reflect the Altamura's deep commitment to reflecting the terroir of their Wooden Valley Ranch. This Sauvignon Blanc comes from their 4-acre 18-year-old dry-farmed vineyard which sits at an altitude of 850 feet. The wine is fermented and aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months resulting in a wine of great depth and complexity, displaying the flavor and textural profile more like a white Bordeaux than a California Sauvignon Blanc.


Very limited production of 800 cases. Wine Spectator scored this 91 points saying "Distinctive, succulent and smooth, with toasted coconut and lemon curd flavors at the core, a supple, juicy texture and honey details. Shows grace and harmony on the long, luscious finish. Drink now."
