DALLA GASPERINA VINEYARD
There is no disputing the dominance of Rutherford when considering the options in Napa Valley… with 4,371 total acres planted in Rutherford, only 475 are planted to Sauvignon Blanc so finding just the right spot has become quite an art. I started making wine from the DG Vineyard in 2006 and have been making wine from the same 9 rows of organically farmed fruit since. Really focusing on a more tropical and floral style, we work hard in the vineyard to encourage full ripeness bursting with flavor before picking.
It gives pretty lemon curd, white peach and elderflower scents with touches of freshly mown grass and crushed rocks. The palate is medium-bodied and refreshing with a lovely oiliness to the texture and an invigorating herbal lift on the finish.
Only 150-200 cases are produced annually.
