About Trinchero 2020 Sauvignon Blanc, Mary's Vyd., Napa Valley
Located in the warm Calistoga AVA, Mary's was the very first vineyard purchased by the Trinchero family, and holds significant sentimental value. Named to honor Mario's wife, Mary's Vineyard has aged very gracefully, with balanced vines, moderately fertile soils and excellent sun exposure-ideal conditions to grow Sauvignon Blanc with a tropical character. About half of the 2020 vintage is pulled from the newer planting of Musqué Clone, adding complexity to the final blend. This wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel. 50% of the blend was aged without lees contact while the other half was on the lees for 3 months and stirred twice per week.
Shows aromas and flavors of lemongrass, zesty grapefruit, crisp honeydew melon, and fresh citrus. This wine has light to medium body, balanced with great minerality and a crisp, viscous, well-balanced finish.
