About Mason 2016 Sauv Blanc, Mill Vyd, Yountvlle, Napa

Nestled on the backside of Yountville Hill, the organically grown Yount Mill Vineyard was established in the early 1930's in a spot where one of Napa's early settlers George Yount had his mill and farm. The owners started planting the Sauvignon Blanc block for Mason Cellars in 2001 so today the mature vines reach deep into the soil and bring rich complexity to the grapes. But the uniqueness of this wine doesn't stop there. Randy Mason, who been producing wine in Napa Valley for 40+ years is UC Davis grad and lifetime Bay Area resident. He was a pioneer for California Sauvignon Blanc and is recognized as one of the best producers in the country. He takes a hands on approach with this Sauvignon Blanc using different techniques to bring out exceptional nuance. A quarter of the fruit ferments in stainless steel while another quarter get barrel fermented in oak "cigars". The rest is stainless steel fermented and aged in tank on the stirred lees. Blended together, the combination gives a wine with texture, bright fruit character and beautiful balance.





The Wine Spectator selected this 2016 for their Top 100 Wines of 2017! They scored it 90 points saying "Clean, smooth and crisp, offering a lip-smacking mix of pear, melon and Key lime flavors, with plenty of intensity on the finish. Drink now."
