The Ziata 2011 Napa Sauvignon Blanc is a focused, vibrant wine.

Product Description

 Ziata 2011 Napa Sauvignon Blanc:

The grapes for this wine come from two special vineyards. Windy Flats Vineyard is located on a gentle, sloping hillside in eastern Napa that is surrounded by towering, shear bluffs of volcanic rock.

The soils are well-drained gravelly loam and areas of shale. A unique feature of this site is the macroclimate: on a typical summer morning, fog from the valley cascades over the bluff, keeping the vineyard 5º – 10º F cooler than surrounding areas. The three clones planted here each impart their personality and add to the complexity of the wine.  The second site is the Alsace Vineyard, located in the famed Rutherford AVA. The soils from this upper east-side bench are a mix of red and brown gravelly loam with excellent drainage.  The site provides the perfect amount of heat to ripen the Sauvignon Blanc but also provides cooler evenings necessary for uniform ripening, good acidity and full maturity at harvest.

Late winter rains persisted through June and created challenges in some vineyards during berry set and development.  Few heat spikes occurred during the year, so growers opened vine canopies to ensure sunlight, warmth and good air circulation around grape clusters. Yields were lower, but the mild summer let the fruit slowly ripen.  The sauvignon blanc benefited from the longer hang time.
